Speech/ Language Therapy... What Is It?
As a speech therapist, I work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, and social communication delays and disorders in children. I am trained to evaluate and target communication skills using developmentally appropriate play based strategies and evidence based practices.
Types Of Services:
Difficulty producing speech sounds (consonants & vowels).
Difficulty using language to express wants, needs, and participate in conversation.
Difficulty understanding language.
Difficulty appropriately communicating verbally (spoken language) and/ or non-verbally (gestures, body language, facial expressions, etc.) in social situations.
Initial consultations are complimentary. Information will be gathered via phone conversation to determine your child's developmental background, interests, individual needs, and target areas of concern. During this initial consultation we will also discuss therapy options and you will be provided educational information.
An evaluation can involve many or all of the following components: Developmental History, Review of Existing Records, Parent Interview, Observations, Speech/ Language Sample, Screening, Standardized Testing, Informal Testing.
Individual Speech Therapy
Play based therapy will take place in the child's natural environment, either in the home or daycare setting. All therapy is individualized to target identified needs along with incorporating personal interests, learning styles, and activities. Each therapy session we will begin by discussing any questions, concerns, and progress from the previous session. From there, the majority of the session will focus on therapy with your child followed up by time at the end to review therapy techniques, ways to incorporate therapy into your daily routine, and any other questions you may have.
