Complimentary Phone Consultations & Screenings
Have questions about your child’s speech and/or language difficulties? Not sure if your child would be a candidate for speech therapy? Call today and let Chatterbox Speech and Language Therapy help you and answer any questions you may have. We can set up a time to screen your child for a small fee which can then be applied to your child’s evaluation, if an evaluation is deemed appropriate.
When evaluating your child, Chatterbox Speech and Language Therapy uses a variety of both formal and informal tests and measurements in order to develop an overall picture of your child’s speech and language abilities. Standardized tests, play-based assessments, speech/language samples, oral-motor assessments, stimulability testing, as well as parent interviews, teacher interviews, and family and school needs/goals are all considered when assessing your child and developing a plan of care. After your child has been assessed, an in-depth written report will be provided to you detailing the results of the evaluation as well as the strengths and areas of needed speech/language development for your child.
In-home or School-based Speech and Language Therapy
Chatterbox Speech and Language Therapy will determine speech and/or language goals for your child based on the results of the evaluation as well as your family’s goals/needs for your child. We value parent input and work to have open and trusted communication with our client’s parents/caregivers. We will provide you with a written plan of care detailing your child’s goals as well as a written progress note after each therapy session.
Frequency and duration of therapy are also determined based on the results of the formal evaluation as well as the needs/goals of the family.
We believe strongly in conducting therapy in your child’s natural environment in order to achieve the best results. Therapy conducted a child’s natural environment promotes carryover of skills learned in therapy to their daily lives. Your home, your child’s private school, preschool, and daycare are just some examples of children’s natural environments.
Our therapy is always fun and play-based. Play is the natural learning tool of children, and at Chatterbox Speech and Language Therapy, we strive to incorporate our therapy into natural play as much as possible which makes learning fun, promotes carryover of skills, and ultimately, yields lasting results.
