Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluations
If you or your doctor suspect that your child has a problem, early evaluation is crucial. Knowing what is “typical” and what is not in your child’s development, can help you figure out if you should be concerned or if your child is right on schedule or not.
Evaluations are conducted in 1-2 hour long speech therapy sessions and include standardized testing, observation during free-play, and parent interview/ report. Assessment results identify your child’s strengths, challenges and detailed description of the nature of the deficit, if one is present. Recommendations will include whether therapy is appropriate, frequency and length of treatment, as well as strategies and suggested goals.
Speech and Language Therapy Sessions
Sessions are typically 45 minutes once or twice a week. A variety of techniques are used so your child has the best chance to make substantial progress in his/her speech and language goals.
Duration of Speech and Language Therapy
The duration of speech therapy greatly depends on your child’s speech and language goals. A child with minor articulation or clarity disorders may only need speech therapy for 12 months or less, whereas a child with more severe issues and other complicating factors may require speech therapy for many years.
