Direct Intervention

Speech and Language Assessments:

Based on your requests and the information  gathered during our initial phone conversation, we determine if an assessment is needed and the specific areas of communication that should be assessed. The assessment usually consists of an interview with the parent, testing if appropriate and observation of the child's language skills in action. A report is provided to outline strengths and areas of need, as well as recommendations.

Pre-School Screenings:

We offer screenings to pre-schools. The screenings are provided at low cost or no cost. The family will receive written notification regarding the results of the screenings. Guidance is provided to help families follow up when a screening identifies a need for further assessment.

Speech and Language Therapy: 

Speech and language therapy takes place at home, at daycare or at school. Goals will be shared and updated to help parents understand what is being worked on and what they can do to help the child's progress. Communication is worked on in the context of play and interaction. Parents may at various points observe and participate or at the very least join the child and therapist at the end of the session to allow for sharing about the session.

Parent training/Consultation:

Parents are invited to learn more about how to help their child be a successful communicator at home through 1:1 parent training. We draw from the curriculum of the Hanen Program® during individual parent consultations.
