With Speech Therapist's Help, Leena Strengthens Communications Skills

November 2, 2017

Impact Stories

Leena works with Speech Therapist Jackie O’Loughlin for a thirty minute session each week at HeartShare’s Union Turnpike Day Habilitation Program. The HeartShare Wellness clinic in downtown Brooklyn, which offers physical, speech, occupational and other therapies, has expanded to several satellite locations throughout HeartShare. “Working in the day hab setting allows our clients to keep their appointments, while also incorporating functional words and phrases into the session. Leena loves getting her nails done, and she knows the process, so I use words like ‘nail polish,’ ‘cotton ball,’ and ‘remover,’” she explained. “Leena catches on quickly. She’s making great progress.”
