Evaluations

We will begin by evaluating your child's speech, language, feeding, and social skills to determine whether a delay or disorder may be present. Our process includes:

  • A parent interview

  • Review of medical and developmental history

  • Informal assessment measures

  • Formal standardized tests

  • Recommendations for therapy

Following the evaluation, we will discuss your child's communication and feeding strengths as well as their challenges. If your child is eligible to receive services, we will work together to create a motivating therapy plan.

Therapy

We put the needs of your child first! Our therapists support communication and feeding skills by using a combination of the following evidence-based therapy approaches:

  • Individual or group therapy sessions

  • Play-based and child-led approaches

  • Clinician directed activities 

  • Co-treatment sessions

  • Parent education and coaching

Caregiver involvement is key to quick and lasting growth! After each session, our therapists will take the time to discuss your child's progress, provide written handouts for your reference, and suggest activities for home practice.
