Advantages of Natural Environment Therapy
The natural environment can be the client's home, school, daycare,
afterschool center or even a grandparent's home. It is a location that the
client spends time in or plays in. It is the area known to the client,
where he or she feels comfortable.
Clients seen for therapy in their own environment may progress more
quickly. The patient is learning new skills in the setting they will use
them. They do not need to learn to carry-over new skills. Caregivers are
encouraged to participate. Also, feeling comfortable in the natural
environment, the client is more inclined to communicate and interact with
the speech-language pathologist.
