Morning person? Me neither. I once took a job working Hong Kong hours from Sydney just to sleep in!
But I know what it’s like rushing from pre-school or school pick-ups to swimming (or dance, martial arts, soccer practice, OT or piano), to speech pathology, then trudging home, exhausted, for homework, dinner, baths and (hopefully) bed. It can all get a bit crazy, especially if you’re also juggling work, volunteer or other commitments.
And, for adults, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your lunch hour, evenings or weekends or duck out early to work on your speech, language, fluency or voice – even if it’s a top priority.
So, in response to parent and client requests, we’ve decided to throw open our shutters earlier on weekday and Saturday mornings. Starting this week, we’re taking assessment and therapy appointments before school and work. How early? You tell us!
For some children – and those mysterious ‘early morning people’ – first thing can be the best time to focus, learn and improve. And, if it works for our clients, it’s worth the extra caffeine. Who knows? We might even become morning folk ourselves after a while!
So, if you’re looking for speech, language, voice, or stuttering therapy for you or your child before work or school, please give us a call on 8757-3838 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
