Comprehensive evaluations for articulation, language, literacy and social communication difficulties are available. Evaluations typically take 1-5 hours to complete and generally include a parent/caregiver interview, standardized assessments, and informal assessment measures. The purpose of an evaluation is to obtain a clear picture of what your child is able to do well, what they are having difficulty with and how it impacts their ability to function in everyday life. You will be provided with a report following the evaluation outlining the results of the evaluation, treatment recommendations and potential goals for treatment as appropriate.
Treatment plans are established at the beginning of therapy based on your child's needs. Parents/Caregivers are encouraged to provide input on therapy goals. They are also encouraged to attend therapy sessions and participate as appropriate. Parent/Caregiver training is often provided during treatment sessions. Siblings are not permitted in the treatment room.
