All of the CDAs at Little Talkers hold Bachelor's degrees, as well as a graduate certificiate specific to CDA education. CDAs are trained to carry out speech and language therapy, through coursework and hands-on experience.
CDAs are highly skilled at speech and language treatment. If your child is working with a CDA, the SLP will complete an assessment and set communication goals for the CDA to target.
