If you are concerned about your child's speech and language and would like a screen completed to see if a full evaluation is warranted, I provide them by appointment. Screenings are not covered by insurance and take approximately 20 minutes. A free phone consultation is also an option to see if your child is in need of more intensive screening or a full evaluation.
Speech Evaluation: Assesses a child's ability to produce age-appropriate speech sounds, placement/voicing/manner of sounds, and establish intelligibility rates that negatively impact their ability to communicate.
Language Evaluation: Assesses a child's ability to understand, process and use language in different language domains. These evaluations are in-depth and comprehensive.
Depending on the need of your child, one or both of these evaluations may be appropriate. Each Evaluation will include information from standardized assessments, parent input, medical history, informal assessments, and observations. Also, a current evaluation (within the past 6 months) by a certified SLP can be used to establish treatment goals.
Based on evaluation results, an independent treatment plan will be written with goals derived from parent input, needs of the child, and clinical recommendations. Treatment sessions will target these goals in a 1:1 setting using motivating activities to keep your child engaged. Parent Education and a Home Program will also be prioritized in the treatment program to generalize skills and enhance progress.
