Evaluations

Speech, language, and literacy services typically begin with an evaluation. Our evaluations are individualized based on parent concerns and developmental history and include parent input, standardized assessments, observation, and therapist-child interaction. Following the evaluation, we will review the results with the family, and together we will develop a plan for therapy based on the child's strengths and challenges. If your child is experiencing any of the following, you may benefit from an evaluation:

  • Limited words or vocalizations

  • Speech that is hard to understand or disfluent

  • Trouble asking and answering questions

  • Difficulty interacting with peers

  • Limited or repetitive play

  • Challenges reading or learning to read or difficulty learning the alphabet and/or letter sounds

Parent Coaching

We believe parent coaching and education are some of the most powerful solutions to fostering a child's communication, social, and academic development. We are changing pediatric speech therapy by focusing on training and supporting those who spend the most time with their children: their parents and caregivers. Through our coaching services, parents and caregivers are given the tools to support ongoing development at home through building opportunities for practice right into daily routines.  Parent coaching is also an excellent option for children who are not ready for direct therapy. Coaching is available to anyone wanting to learn how to:

  • Learn strategies to help your child communicate and interact during everyday routines and activities

  • Understand how to engage your child in back and forth communication exchanges (even before he or she is using words to communicate)

  • Manage unwanted or challenging behavior

  • Learn news ways to play with your child and how to increase opportunities for social interaction
