SCREENINGS

Screening is a brief measure used to determine if a more comprehensive evaluation of skills is warranted. If a child’s abilities indicate that they are below age-appropriate levels in one or more areas of communication, further testing will be offered in those areas.

Strides Speech Therapy also provides program wide screenings at local preschools and private schools. We also offer FREE screenings and phone consultations.

EVALUATIONS

An evaluation is used to help better understand why a child is having difficulty in one or more aspects of communication. Prior to beginning our evaluation, a thorough case history will be completed and an interview with the client and family will occur. Utilizing this information and the reason for referral, specific standardized assessments and informal tools will be chosen to evaluate each client to determine their strengths and weaknesses. A completed report will detail the findings and include an individualized treatment plan, including goals, interventions and instructional approaches if appropriate.

If a client has been evaluated by another licensed and ASHA certified Speech-Language Pathologist within the last 12-months and a current treatment plan is available, a formal evaluation is not needed.

TREATMENT

Strides Speech Therapy offers individual or group treatment to address areas of need as indicated on an evaluation. With younger children, we take a play based approach to treatment. We utilize each child’s interests and strengths to motivate them throughout the therapy sessions. Part of our sessions include parent training and feedback for further carryover to increase communication success and build on goals targeted in therapy.
