Speech and Language Evaluations

We utilize both informal and formal assessment measures, including child/parent/caregiver interview, clinical observations, play-based assessment when necessary, as well as standardized tests to evaluate your speech & language and/or feeding skills.

Speech Sound/Articulation Evaluation (3 years and above) $ 250

Feeding  Assessment: $350

 “Evaluation” does not mean pointing to item on a test. Rather it means interacting, observing, assessing, playing, using standardization instruments as indicated, all in order to understand your child and how best to move forward.  Please be assured it is not necessary that your child perform “on command”. 

Next, time is spent in conversation with you, in parent education, answering your questions and addressing how to best support your child’s progress.  Facilitative techniques are described and modeled. Educational considerations for your child’s particular profile are also discussed. Time is allotted to be sure you have the opportunity to ask all the questions you may have.  “

Her gentle and compassionate approach was just the connection my son needed

My son Finnian was diagnosed with autism at age 3 and was non verbal. I remember being so scared and stressed about Finn’s future until I met his team of teachers and therapists. Miss Brooke was my son Finn’s speech therapist in his EC Pre-K classroom. She was amazing with Finn and supportive to me. Her gentle and compassionate approach was just the connection my son needed to feel safe and grow. One of my favorite qualities of Miss Brooke is her genuine enthusiasm when working with my son. I will always be grateful for her twinkling eyes and contagious smile when discussing my son’s progress and growth. Thank you Miss Brooke!
