Evaluations for speech, language and literacy deficits determine specific areas of strength and weakness, and which building block skills need to be remediated. They are completed when beginning therapy with a new client and after a screening has been done. The evaluation ensures we have a complete picture of the child’s needs and strengths. Testing completed during an evaluation is used to create goals for therapy and monitor progress over time.
Although evaluations are typically a part of the new client process, the Children’s Speech and Reading Center will provide evaluation-only services on a case-by-case basis. The services include a full report for the family and any other service provider or physician with whom the family would like to share it.
