Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. SLPs look at the following components
Speech Therapy Evaluation:
A speech therapy evaluation is administered by our speech therapist. During the evaluation, the speech therapist will assess the child's current functional status in the areas above. Together with the child and family, a treatment plan is developed with short-term and long-term goals to improve targeted skills and functional limitations. The frequency and duration of speech therapy are also determined during the evaluation. The Speech evaluation will last 60 minutes.
Speech Therapy Sessions:
Speech therapy sessions are performed by the speech therapist. The sessions are used to address the goals developed within the speech evaluation. The therapist provides one-on-one direct treatment integrating therapeutic activities to enhance progress. Parental education and a comprehensive home program are also provided to support the carryover of skills to the home and community. Each speech session is 60 minutes in duration.
