Our doctors believe that speech-language evaluation may be vital in determining the origins of struggles children and adolescents experience at home, in school, and at play.

During evaluation, the speech-language pathologist examines the following areas of concern:

  • Receptive language, the language he or she understands when spoken to
  • Expressive language, the language used by him or her for communication
  • Articulation, how he or she makes speech sounds
  • Pragmatics, otherwise known as social language

This is what you can expect at the speech-language evaluation:

  • Brief clinical interview with parents
  • Receptive and expressive language evaluation of the patient
  • Articulation evaluation of the patient
  • Pragmatics evaluation of the patient
  • Scoring, interpretation, and report writing.

This is what you can expect at the speech-language consultation:

  • Explanation of observations and scores obtained during evaluation and other data collections measures
  • Explanation of diagnoses
  • Recommendations and treatment plan development
  • Written report detailing the evaluation and consultation appointments will follow this appointment – you will receive it in approximately three weeks.
