SPEECH AND LANGUAGE EVALUATIONS
Speech sound disorders are one of the most common concerns for parents. Children develop at different rates, which makes it difficult to know what to expect from a child's speech. A formal speech evaluation can help answer:
What sounds are expected at a certain age?
How your child's speech skills are impacting his/her vocabulary development?
How intelligible is your child's connected speech?
Are your child's speech errors phonological or motor based?
Language is an essential skill for academic, social and life success. A formal language assessment investigates vocabulary functioning, semantic skills, verbal memory and various language processing abilities.
Speech and Language evaluations can be conducted in one day or through dynamic assessment.
These evaluations allocate 18 sessions to provide intensive intervention in addition to gathering formal and informal assessment information. Performing evaluations over multiple weeks allows for flexibility to tailor the assessment to best meet the needs of the client while gathering both performance and response data.
