As a clinician, one of the most sobering things I have to deal with is a six year old child trying to convince me that they are far too busy to be doing the homework drills I am giving them. I have had nearly every activity/reason imaginable given to me as why they can’t do the home work. Karate, piano, dance, soccer, baseball, hockey, movies, parties is just the start of the reasons why their homework could not be done. This earns them a 1435 discussion.
In my world there are few things that are more important than being able to speak clearly, and being understood. We are working on something that will be used dozens if not hundreds of times a day for their entire life. Few things are used more frequently than our sounds.
There are 1440 minutes in a 24 hour period. 1435 is the number of minutes that remain after doing their speech drills.
There is no reason for not being able to do speech drills for 5 minutes a day. It doesn’t take long. There is no reason your life has to suffer. It just takes some commitment and follow-through.
