SPEECH AND LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT:
Speak 2 Me offers both consultations and evaluations.
Consultations gather relevant information regarding the client, including any previous evaluations or assessments. Initial consultations are assessments based on parent meeting, informal observations and clinical opinion, and serve to determine whether further testing and formal evaluation is deemed necessary at that time. In the event that a child has already been through the evaluation process and diagnosed, the consultation serves to determine the best approach to meet the communication needs of the client, and to create an appropriate treatment plan. Upon conclusion of the consult, Recommendations are provided, along with verbal discussion, family training and/or counseling.
A consultation is recommended if you are interested in enrolling your child at Speak 2 Me and they have been recently evaluated.
Comprehensive evaluations are conducted when a client has not yet been diagnosed or treated. Evaluations use a combination of standardized testing, parent/caregiver 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 child in need of services. The evaluation is then conducted most frequently in the client’s home, but may also take place in the office or school setting. Assessment results will include a verbal discussion along with a written repot highlighting recommendations such as whether therapy is warranted, frequency and length of treatment sessions, and a treatment plan outlining specific goals tailored to the needs of the child.
SPEECH/LANGUAGE THERAPY and TREATMENT:
Speech and/or Language therapy is provided to children ranging from ages 18 months through adolescents, and serves to build speech and language skills through various programs and techniques, homework activities and family education. Therapy can be provided in the home, daycare, or school setting with sessions typically 45 minutes in length, but may be shorter for younger children. To ensure the highest quality of therapy, services are provided on an individual basis and are always accompanied by home practice programs to allow for optimal carry-over and integration of skills learned in each session. Speak 2 Me is devoted to helping children achieve their ultimate goal of effective communication.
