A speech and language evaluation is used to identify specific areas where your child may be displaying weaknesses in speech or language development.
Standardized tests are selected based on information obtained during the screening. Observation and informal assessments may also be used. Goals are formulated based on evaluation results.
The goals we formulate guide the direction we will take in the therapy sessions. If you have specific goals for your child, we can incorporate them into the evaluation during this session.
A speech and language evaluation usually takes around on hour but may take longer (or across several sessions) depending on the needs of the child.
