Speech and Language Evaluations
The Evaluation Process:
- An initial interview is conducted prior to the initiation of testing. The purpose of this interview is to: determine the primary presenting concern, attain a strong understanding of the developmental, academic, and medical history, as well as to discern response to previous therapy programs.
- A thorough review of all prior evaluations; including psychological, academic, speech and language, and occupational therapy
- When warranted, an observation of the individual in their classroom or home environment will be scheduled.
- After careful consideration of all evaluations and reports, a battery of speech and language tests will be identified that will effectively measure the individual’s current speech and language functioning.
- After scoring and review of the individual’s test performance, a meeting will be scheduled to discuss results, as well as to provide appropriate recommendations.
- Upon conclusion of the evaluation process, a formal and comprehensive written evaluation will be provided.
