Two sessions per week are recommended.
If participating in only one weekly session, parental involvement is required during the session to learn how to reinforce the skills taught during each lesson at home.
During this evaluation, the Speech Language Pathologist will gather detailed information about your child’s ability to produce speech sounds in isolation, words, and conversational speech. In this assessment, the Speech Language pathologist will be analyzing your child's articulation, oral-motor structures and abilities, speech fluency, and vocal quality.
SPEECH AND LANGUAGE EVALUATION
This evaluation will include an articulation evaluation, described above, and a language evaluation. Language refers to the system of words and symbols used to communicate meaning. The assessment encompasses understanding vocabulary and concepts, syntax (word order), grammatical regulations, and affixation such as "s" for plurals and "-ed" for past tense. Depending on your child's needs, it may also include an analysis of pragmatic/social language skills. The evaluation is divided into two components: receptive language (language that a child comprehends) and expressive language (language used by a child to communicate).
