At Step by Step, we steer clear of the 'one size fits all' approach.

Step by Step Learning provides individualised services to the Paediatric population (2-18 yrs).
We support our client’s in their learning journey, and equip them with the skills required to each reach their individual potential.

We all say it, when we are trying to teach our little one a new word, we often say, “SAY ____!”.

Whether you are teaching your child a name (“SAY Mum”), an object (“Say water”) or even a greeting (“Say bye-bye”). All parents do this, and it is okay, but we want you to try to minimise telling your child to “SAY” this or that...

Why? Because sometimes telling your child exactly what to say can have the reverse effect and your child may not say anything at all, especially our younger toddlers, or our delayed talkers. Your child may not like being put on the spot, so instead of putting talking pressure on your child and telling them to “SAY”

Instead, try to model saying the word with a concrete object, to show what this word represents.

For example: If your child wants water, instead of saying “Say water”, you could say the following
“You want WATER? Water? Water in your cup? This water?” while holding or pointing to the water.

Are you guilty of saying “SAY”? We try to teach our families to minimise doing this, but it can be hard to break a habit! #stepbysteplearning

TURN TAKING An important skill in both play and communication.

Turn taking facilitates participation in social communications and building friendships. Children first learn to take turns when playing with others.

Encourage turn-taking by prompting as you’re playing - “It’s Mummy’s turn”, and then “It’s Max’s turn” etc. Encourage your little one to wait when it is not their turn, to build on this skill.

For more language stimulation strategies to use with your little one, head to our website and check out our free resource on this topic ✏️

With the opening of our office in 2020, this meant that we no longer offered home visits for our tutoring sessions.

We understand that multiple commitments can sometimes make it difficult to get to our office, so this year will be implementing some changes.

Step by Step Learning will offer home visits for EARLY MORNING tutoring sessions. These sessions will incur a travel fee, and will be available to families within a 10 km radius of our office.

In addition to this, we will be opening up more availability, with our office now opening on SATURDAY’S. We will be open on Saturday’s from the beginning of Term 1, to meet demand and hopefully assist with juggling your busy schedules during the week!

ENQUIRE NOW for early morning home visits and Saturday sessions at the office. #stepbysteplearning

One of our favourite tools to use for our younger students, not only in speech therapy but tutoring too.

Orchard Toys are such a handy little tool – and we encourage families to have this gem at home for practise too.

When learning to read, letter-sound correspondence is vital!

This literacy game encourages letter recognition and word building. Any games we can have in therapy AND at home, encourages both our students and our families on the journey of learning #stepbysteplearning

We love this idea from @giftedandtalentedteacher to begin the New Year in a positive way. Write down goals or wishes for the year, fold it into a star and place in a jar. We believe it encourages growth, healthy drive mindset and goal setting! #stepbysteplearning ...

Words like acai or quinoa just shouldn’t exist… Or words we have to silently spell out like 😂

Guess who, times-table version!

If there is one thing we know, it is that practise makes perfect! Our main goal is to keep students engaged and motivated to learn new skills – and this is one you can do at home over the break!

Awesome idea from @rainbowskycreations #stepbysteplearning

We all know that school holidays are a period where routine, and the day-to-day of what you normally do with your children go out the window.

Whether you’re staying home for the holidays, or heading away to explore, holidays with kids are about planning for short attention spans and creating ways to keep them occupied.

Holidays need to be fun and relaxing, however many children benefit from routine! We use and love this app called ‘Choice Works’ as a visual schedule during sessions. It is completely customisable, and allows your child to see what is coming next. You’re welcome 😉

In our opinion, handmade always shows the thought that goes into the gift. We love this super cute idea for Christmas cards using buttons! A great activity to begin the holidays with, while working those fine motor skills #stepbysteplearning
