If you have questions and would like to discuss your concerns, please set up a free 20-minute phone call to see if private speech therapy is right for you and your family.
The resource section may help answer some of your questions.
Based on your concerns, an initial assessment will be completed to evaluate your child’s communication skills.
This includes an informal assessment and a review of your child’s developmental history to determine your child’s strengths and weaknesses.
This guides the development of goals that are meaningful and individualized to your child.
If you have recently received an evaluation from another provider, an assessment may not be necessary.
After evaluating your child's communication skills, a unique therapy plan will be created using the goals that we establish together.
Sessions are individualized to your child's goals and interests. Goals are updated as progress is made.
The frequency and length of the therapy sessions will depend on the specific needs of your child and your family.
Suggestions and activities for home practice will be provided during the last 5-15 minutes of the session.
As much as possible, therapy will be play-based to encourage participation and motivation. Families are encouraged to participate and practice strategies during therapy sessions.
