Consultations

Phone consultations are always FREE of charge! If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s speech and language skills our therapist is available to discuss via phone consultation. 

Please keep in mind that many times the only way to truly answer questions related to an individuals speech/language skills is to hear them and observe their interactions; a skills screening and/or comprehensive evaluation may be necessary in order to truly determine a child’s need for therapy services.

Speech and Language Screenings

Informal screenings are available at a rate of $35/half hour session.  This informal observational session will allow our therapist to make general observations and insights regarding your child’s speech and language skills. Results will be discussed but no formal documentation provided following these screenings.

 Informal Speech and Language Screenings could include but are not limited to:

  • Oral Motor Assessment
  • Informal Speech/Language Sample
  • Discussion of general impressions include discussion regarding previous test
  • results, academic and developmental performance
  • Discussion of treatment options and overlook of potential treatment plans

Comprehensive Speech and Language Evaluations

 While comprehensive evaluations are not a requirement to initiate treatment they can provide substantial information to the therapist, family and other team members regarding the individuals current level of performance in a given skill area. These assessments can be used to formulate more accurate and effective treatment plans and can be shared with all members of an individual’s treatment plan to insure continuity across services and to provide all team members with a complete picture of the child/individuals strengths and weaknesses.

*Depending on whether or not you plan to have your services reimbursed through your personal insurance it is imperative that you discuss with your provider whether or not a comprehensive evaluation is necessary in order to determine eligibility for services. Likewise, it is important to discuss their coverage of these types of evaluations upfront.

*If the child/individual has previously been assessed (school or otherwise) we can utilize those results initially in beginning our treatment plan, so please bring any previous test results and/or assessment reports for review.

 All comprehensive evaluations begin with completion of a comprehensive case history report and a parental/caregiver interview which allows our therapists to select the most appropriate assessment protocols and create the most individualized treatment plans based on the needs of the individual and his/her family. Assessment results will be presented in a formal document within two weeks of the evaluation session and will include recommendations including whether therapy is warranted and information regarding recommended frequency and length of treatment session.
