Laughlin Children's Center in Sewickley has received a $3,000 grant from First National Bank, underwriting the cost of purchasing and installing listening stations in the center's speech therapy observation rooms.
Added during Laughlin's 2012 renovation, the observation rooms have one-way mirrors that allow parents to watch their child's therapy session without being present in the room with the child and speech pathologist. The four listening stations give parents the ability to hear what's going on, in addition to watching.
The added dimension allows parents to practice some of the strategies that Laughlin's speech department works on with the children.
The listening stations also will be used to help other educational professionals who might be involved with the child and family, such as a speech therapist the child sees at school, another Laughlin clinician, or the graduate interns from the University of Pittsburgh whom Laughlin trains each fall and summer.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
