Our assessment process is designed to determine the specific linguistic challenges impacting your child and use the information obtained to establish a unique language profile including specific recommendations to help program for your child’s needs. The types of assessments we provide range from language screenings to comprehensive speech and language assessments. Each assessment begins with a thorough review of background information to aid in the development of a testing protocol. Following a review of the background information provided, a battery of tests is selected to explore your child’s specific needs.

Skills addressed include:

• Auditory Skills (e.g., auditory discrimination, phonological awareness, auditory memory, auditory comprehension)
• Receptive and Expressive Oral and Written Language
• Reading Fluency
• Reading Comprehension
• Spelling
• Articulation/Oral Motor Skills
• Voice and Hearing Screening

Skills related to the retrieval and processing of spoken and written language, direction following, language organization and formulation, understanding and use of word and sentence structure, and the language of executive functioning are also addressed via the above assessment. Social pragmatics language and verbal problem solving skills are also assessed.

Once the testing is complete and the results are complied, a review of the information is provided as well as an in-depth report. The report provided will provide diagnoses, if applicable, along with specific recommendations and accommodations.
