Here at Families in Global Transition, we consider ourselves lucky to have supportive sponsors like Worldwide Speech.
Founder Erin Long, a longtime expat herself, knows firsthand the demands and challenges of a cross-cultural life. It’s why she built her company. It’s also why she has been an active participant in FIGT and our annual conferences for several years. Erin actively shares her insights on trends and developments in support services for children with special needs, all the while listening to and learning from fellow attendees who are concerned parents or teachers and administrators in global education.
Erin understands that children with special needs may require additional support in order to attend and thrive in an international school setting. Committed to giving children the opportunities they deserve, she ensures Worldwide Speech’s therapists are licensed practitioners, and they make hard-to-find services like speech therapy and reading intervention available by providing sessions online.
“Our primary service is providing online services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and academic tutoring,” Erin says. “Our value, however, is not just in our services, but our understanding of the international schools and mobile community.”
Erin also gives back to international education by mentoring graduate students studying speech therapy who have an interest in working with children in the globally mobile community.
Many thanks to Worldwide Services and Erin for continued partnership with FIGT!
