Our Approach to Treatment
Patients participating in our Speech and Language Therapy services undergo a comprehensive assessment prior to beginning therapy to determine a treatment plan based on their unique needs. Our Speech-Language Pathologist uses formal assessments, behavioral observations, parental report, and background information about the child to determine the severity of the speech and/or language problem that is present according to age designated development. Based upon this information, our Speech-Language Pathologist designs individual treatment programs and carefully evaluates these programs on an ongoing basis in order to make changes as appropriate depending on the child's progress.
Parental or caregiver involvement is the key to a successful treatment. A family information period is offered to educate parents about vocabulary and strategies that are being used/taught to improve their child's communications and language skills.
