Are you a parent / carer who is investing money into a speech therapist for  your child…only for that therapist to show up and “just play” for the entire appointment?

Albert Einstein knew a thing or two about play, once saying that “play is the highest form of research”. Unsurprisingly, Einstein was right. Play is the number one way that children learn. It improves the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children. Through play, children learn about the world and themselves.
