Survey for parents of children with language disabilities

As the parent of a child who has language disabilities you may have worries or opinions that are related to your child’s language learning needs.  Dr. LaVae Hoffman at the University of Virginia is conducting research to identify parent concerns. The results of this research will help her develop ways to meet your needs.

Please share your thoughts by completing a short survey at (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8JXFJHB).  It will only take about 5 minutes to do the survey.  The survey is confidential and your name will not be asked.   

You may contact Dr. Hoffman at lmh3f@virginia.edu if you have questions.

Thank you South Jerz Riderz

IMG950516 (2)Small Steps In Speech would like to send our sincere thanks to our friends the South Jerz Riderz for their continued support of our organization.  Their charity runs have raised close to twenty thousand dollars for Small Steps and allowed us to award grants to numerous children who so desperately need to find their voice.  This week, the members of the club were presented with Small Steps in Speech patches as a small token of our appreciation.
