A comprehensive, differentiated assessment is the starting point to answer the difficult questions for families. The assessment process is customized to your child’s needs.

Comprehensive assessment for children three and four years of age, includes the use of clinical play-based and behavioral observations, parent interview, standardized and non-standardized tools, and language sampling to support understanding your child’s foundations. Assessment may look at the following areas based on your child’s strengths and needs:

  • Play development
  • Oral motor development,
  • Speech sound development
  • Motor planning and coordination for speech     
  • Phonological processing, 
  • Receptive language skills
  • Expressive language skills
  • Fluency (Stuttering)
  • Pragmatic skills
  • Social-relatedness foundations

 as well as understanding your child’s patterns with

  • processing, 
  • memory, and 
  • learning. 

For young children, play development is a component of the assessment as it is the foundation for early communication. Observation of social-emotional and behavioral patterns with communication is also an integral component of assessment for preschoolers.

School readiness or pre-academic components are also assessed through observation and standardized assessment once children are four years of age. These include phonemic processing/phonological awareness for pre-reading, early symbolic writing skills, early alphabetic knowledge, and story comprehension.

The assessment process for 3 year old’s is up to two hours and costs $400.00. In addition, a 1-hour parent consultation separate from the assessment is included.*

The assessment process for 4 year old’s is up to 2.5 hours and costs $475.00. In addition, a 1-hour parent consultation separate from the assessment is included.*

*Additional time for assessment or parent meeting/ meeting with school teams or mental health providers will be billed at the hourly rate.
