We provide assessment of pediatric communication skills using clinical observation, parent interviews, standardized assessments, criterion-referenced measures, and informal, play-based interaction. Sometimes it is also beneficial to observe the child at school and interview his/her teacher.
Evaluations can range from short screenings or consultations to more comprehensive assessments including all aspects of language, speech, social skills, and/or any possible benefits of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC).
Initial, 15-minute phone consultations are always free. It is often helpful to just have a short chat to discuss your concerns and offer our recommendations for appropriate assessment and services. If we can’t help you, we are happy to refer you to others we think could.
We also provide independent educational evaluations (IEE) and recommendations for school districts upon request.
