Comprehensive Speech and Language Evaluations

Prior to beginning therapy, a diagnostic speech and language evaluation is conducted. To develop an in-depth understanding of each individual child’s needs, we utilize a combination of standardized testing, parent or client interviews, and informal observation. The process begins with the completion of an intake form, which helps the therapist select appropriate testing materials and provides background information on the client in need of services. Evaluations typically take between two and four hours, depending on the age and language level of the child. Testing may be broken into two days if needed. Assessment results are reviewed with parents at the end of the evaluation, and include recommendations such as whether therapy is warranted, as well as the frequency and length of treatment sessions. A full report with a detailed treatment plan that includes diagnostic impressions, recommendations, goals and objectives is also provided. We provide expertise in the following areas:
