. Stoa Speech & Debate is for Christian homeschool students between the ages of 12-18.

· Students ages 10-11 can attend, but need to be “mature” in their educational interests and emotional development.

· The materials and concepts we cover can be challenging and require focus.

Bloom and Grow Speech Therapy

Do you have concerns about your child’s speech or language?

Does your child struggle with academics, vocabulary, following directions, or reading?

Detecting a speech or language problem can be tricky if you don’t know the traits of typical development. The simple rule of thumb is a language problem may exist if a child doesn’t understand and/or express what they want to say as well as other children of the same age. Research shows that the earlier problems are detected and treated, the better children progress and keep pace with peers in learning and social relationships.

Stacy Bick, former homeschooling mom and Speech Therapist at BLOOM AND GROW SPEECH THERAPY (formerly Victory Speech Therapy and Autism), now has openings to help your child with any concerns you may have from articulation, vocabulary, language, listening skills, auditory processing, stuttering, to vocal quality. She is offering a free 15 minute screening. And if therapy is needed, she offers a 50% discount to homeschooling families. Virtual Therapy is also available, if desired!

Contact her at [email protected] or call 314-635-5400.
