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.

For school-aged children, comprehensive assessment includes the use of clinical observations, parent interview, review of school records and prior testing, 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:

  • Oral motor development
  • Speech sound development
  • Motor planning and coordination for speech     
  • Phonological processing
  • Receptive language skills
  • Expressive language skills
  • Word Retrieval/Word Finding
  • Fluency (Stuttering)
  • Pragmatic skills
  • Learner Behaviors

 as well as understanding your child’s patterns with

  • attention,
  • processing, 
  • memory, and 
  • learning. 

For school-aged children the assessment process expands with more specificity, based on relationships between auditory and language processing, with language and reading development, writing, and learning are integral.
