Screening / Evaluation
Some families start with a Developmental Screening to determine if an evaluation or other services are recommended. This 15 minute appointment intended to give families some education and guidance on their child's development, next steps or recommendations and activities to help promote their skills.
An Evaluation is necessary for insurance reimbursement and to develop a "plan of treatment", including goals and other recommendations. A licensed speech/language pathologist will evaluate your child in a child-friendly environment. Parents know their child best and many are concerned how will my child do during the evaluation. Parents complete a questionnaire prior to the evaluation which is reviewed by the evaluating therapists. Parents can accompany their child into the evaluation as well. We use standardized assessment tools, as well as clinical observations. You will receive a written report with goals and recommendations, which may be share with you child's pediatrician, teachers or other providers. Following an evaluation, ongoing therapy can be scheduled as recommended.
