Trust Your Intuition: Advocating for Your Child’s Health and Well-being 

Trust Your Intuition: Advocating for Your Child’s Health and Well-being 

As parents, our intuition serves as a compass guiding us through the intricate journey of raising our children. We inherently understand their needs, quirks, and potential challenges. However, when it comes to matters like speech and feeding difficulties, many parents find themselves feeling unheard, despite their instinctive knowledge of their child’s well-being. 

It’s essential to recognize the power of our intuition, especially in advocating for therapies like speech and feeding therapy. When we observe our child struggling to communicate or experiencing difficulties with eating, our intuition signals that something needs attention. Trusting this instinct can lead us to seek out the support and resources necessary to address these challenges effectively. 

In medical settings, it’s vital to assert ourselves as our child’s foremost advocate. If concerns about speech or feeding arise, don’t hesitate to voice them. Request evaluations and referrals to speech and feeding therapy specialists. Your intuition is a valuable asset in navigating your child’s health journey. 

Remember, no one knows your child better than you do. Trust your intuition, speak up, and advocate for the therapies that can make a profound difference in your child’s life.
