Speech and Language Screenings

 A speech-language screening is a quick assessment (approximately 15 minutes) of a child’s articulation, fluency, voice, and language to determine if there is a need for further evaluation.

Comprehensive Evaluations

A comprehensive speech-language evaluation will provide a complete picture of your child's communication abilities and determines if a delay or disorder is present. The therapist working with the child will gain caregiver input and determine the child’s communication strengths and areas of need based on caregiver report, observation, and formal and informal assessment tools. Caregivers will receive a report detailing the findings and if needed a plan of care that outlines goals for therapy. Caregivers are encouraged to ask questions and feel comfortable sharing information regarding their children’s skills as well as their goals for their child.

Individualized Therapy

Speech and language therapy sessions are scheduled for 30 minutes and are usually once or twice a week depending on each circumstance. The sessions focus on addressing the goals that you and the therapist have created together for your child. The therapist will use various therapeutic approaches and will provide caregiver education and training throughout the session. Home exercises and activities will be provided to help your child build and maintain skills outside of their therapy sessions.

Parent/Caregiver Coaching

Parent /caregivers coaching calls offer you a way to get more input and strategies you can use to work at home. Coaching calls and therapy are different. They are stand alone sessions that teach techniques to increase engagement and executive functioning skills at home. Your child would not be part of this call and this is not a direct therapy service.​ Our parent coaching calls are 30 to 45 minutes and can be scheduled weekly, biweekly, or monthly. Calls can be virtual or over the phone. These calls offer parents/caregivers more suggestions and strategies to support their child at home. This is a great option for families who do not have access to direct therapy for their child at this time.

Articulation/Phonological Disorders

Articulation therapy is a treatment that focuses on the accurate production of speech sounds to improve speech clarity and pronunciation. We teach your child how to produce certain sounds, understand phonological patterns in speech, and how to coordinate speech sounds.

Early Intervention (Birth-3 years)

Early intervention refers to the treatment of children from birth to 3 years old. This is parent directed and play-based therapy that takes place in the child’s natural learning environment typically in their home, but may also take place in the child’s preschool/daycare or community setting.

Fluency (Stuttering)

Stuttering is an involuntary disruption in the forward flow of speech. Stuttering involves not only the surface behaviors but the person’s thoughts and feelings about stuttering and how it impacts their life. The main goal of treatment is to support those who stutter and their families as they navigate the complexities of stuttering in order to be able to freely and confidently communicate with others.
