During a 15 - 30 minutes evaluation, we will
administer a standardized speech or language
testing which typically involves identifying
pictures, following directions, answering
questions, and describing pictures.
Based on the results of your child’s evaluation,
articulation/speech or language classes may be
recommended. Classes are 30 minutes long.
Speech class activities typically include
working on sounds in simple syllables (ex. “me”) then progressing to more complex
words (ex. “mommy”), phrases, sentences and
ultimately conversational speech. In cases, where the child has pronunciation issues, we will work on developing the letters the child is missing for his/her developmental age.
In language classes we may work on, following directions, understanding conversation, answering questions, understanding stories, using correct verb tenses, pronouns, plurals, etc., understanding and responding appropriately to social situations.
