We conduct evaluations and treatment for children with a variety of speech and language needs including, but not limited to:
The first step in the process is to have an evaluation completed for your child. I offer complete diagnostic evaluations, which determine the child's speech and language needs and help guide the course of your child’s therapy. A parent questionnaire will help inform the evaluation process; assessments relating to speech, voice, language, fluency, and social disorders at all levels of severity may be utilized based on the needs of your child. I will evaluate each child's strengths as well as any areas of concern using a number of measures to capture a comprehensive picture of your child’s needs and abilities.An evaluation will include a parent report, unstructured play and conversation, and formal tests. All evaluations are performed by a licensed speech/language pathologist.Please plan for 1-2 hours to complete the evaluation depending on the needs and age of the child. In some cases, if your child has a current Speech/Language IEP, the evaluation process may be shortened or omitted.
Speech/Language Therapy Sessions
An individualized therapy plan will be developed for your child based on the results of the comprehensive speech and language assessment. Your child’s treatment plan will be tailored to the area(s) of need and will incorporate multiple learning formats and styles to engage your child in learning. Therapy is conducted by a licensed speech/language pathologist. Each therapy session is scheduled in 15 minute increments leaving 5 minutes at the end of the session to discuss what was worked on and what skills should be continued with home practice.
We are available to consult with school personal for IEP and Case Conference meetings, other outside therapists, including OT, PT and psychologists as well as physicians as requested by the parents.
