How do I know if my child needs Speech Therapy?
It has been our experience that parents can be the best pre-screeners. If you are on our website it is more than likely because you already have a concern and want to seek further guidance. Please utilize the developmental checklist on our website as a reference for developmental milestones. If after reviewing the checklist you find yourself still unsure, then we recommend calling us and setting up a free screening. One of our skilled therapist will asses your child's current developmental progress and recommend the next appropriate step(s), if further assistance is needed.
What if my child needs an evaluation?
If an evaluation is recommended as the next step from your screening, we will contact your child's physician and request an order to be faxed. All evaluations and treatments are provided under physician orders. We will send you a registration packet in the mail so you can complete this prior to the evaluation.
What can I expect during Speech Therapy sessions?
Each child has an individualized plan of care created for them. The parents and physician will be included on the goals developed for the child. The child will attend their therapy sessions with a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. Pediatric therapy is play based, so most children don't even realize they are in therapy and working toward the goals developed in the plan of care. Today's therapy is fun and goes with the interest of the child.
