Thanks Jennifer. Yes, people were extremely willing to help. One simply said, “Anything for the kids.” Another was traveling but gave me a cell phone number. Many were obviously very busy, but dropped what they were doing to take the call (including a dentist who interrupted a procedure of some sort—I had this mental image of a guy sitting in a dentist’s chair, mouth open, tubes running back & forth, etc. while his dentist was on the phone talking about his ball playing days). And no one acted like he or she was doing me a favor. They all seemed genuinely happy to help out...RE steps, it depends on the individual, but they might include practicing their homework in front of a family member, then working a technique into their speech with family, then with good friends, then 1 stranger (maybe I bring in another SLP or group 2 of the kids), then more—you get the idea.
