Evaluation of speech and language skills
- Your child will meet with one of our licensed Speech-Language Pathologists in an individual setting. The Speech-Language Pathologist will administer a comprehensive assessment which may include standardized testing, observation, parent interview, play-based assessment or rating scales. The assessment will be tailored to your concerns, for example, speech, language, fluency or social skills. Results of this assessment will be shared with the parent and any other team members to determine a treatment plan. If your child has been evaluated at a different location within the past year, the results of this evaluation will be considered.
Individual therapy provided in a variety of areas including:
- Individual therapy services will be provided by a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist based on the results of speech language evaluation. Therapy will be customized to your child's strengths, needs and interests.
Collaboration with caregivers to support generalization of newly acquired skills
- In order to best meet your child's needs, Stark Speech Services believes a strong partnership with parents or caregivers is essential. This may also include collaborating with your child's pediatrician, teacher, orthodontist, dentist or other therapists.
