Speech-Language Assessments

Speech-Language Pathologists assist when a child has speech or language challenges.

  • Speech is the ability to produce sounds by coordinating and moving specific oral motor structures (e.g., tongue, mouth) at the right time.
  • Language is the ability to put words together to make phrases or sentences in order to express many different ideas, as well as to understand what is said.

What to expect from an assessment:

To understand your child, our speech-language pathologist (SLP) will spend time observing your child, gathering information from you, and completing standardized assessments. Our SLP and you will then have an opportunity to review the results together, answering your questions and explaining the communication strengths and areas for growth for your child. Following the assessment, you will be provided with a written assessment report that provides the results, as well as strategies and referrals as appropriate.

  • We complete assessments to learn more about child’s communication.
  • We offer opportunity to discuss these results and answer your questions.
  • You will receive a written report of your child’s strengths and areas for growth with suggestions.
  • Your child’s report will give other professionals a full understanding of your child’s communication profile.
