What to expect
When you bring your child in for their first speech and language therapy appointment, we will take a thorough case history, including medical status, education, socioeconomic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds, and information.
Our speech pathologists and occupational therapists will also conduct a review of auditory, visual, motor, and cognitive status of your child and look at standardized and/or non-standardized measures of specific aspects of speech, spoken, and non-spoken language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing function.
We will work to identify an effective treatment plan and provide follow-up services to monitor communication and swallowing status and ensure appropriate intervention and support for individuals with identified speech, language, cognitive-communication, and/or swallowing disorders.
