A speech-language assessment will be completed by one of our skilled speech-language pathologists. Every assessment will be crafted based on your child’s individual needs and areas of concern and typically takes 1-2 hours. During your child’s assessment we will collect a thorough case history, interview caregivers, administer standardized assessments (to obtain your child’s current speech-language levels in comparison to same-aged peers) and criterion referenced measures, complete an oral mechanism exam, and collect language samples during play and conversation observations. At the end of an assessment, your therapist will go over your child’s performance. Your therapist may be able to share assessment results and recommendations with you at the end of the assessment. However, it is typical that your therapist will need time to review the results and information obtained during the assessment before discussion the results and recommendations. Results and recommendations are typically communicated within 1-2 weeks after your assessment.
