The speech-language pathologist will provide a comprehensive assessment of speech and language skills, looking at language literacy abilities in depth. The goal is to determine the strengths and weaknesses in one’s understanding and use of spoken language, attention and memory, phonological awareness skills, sound-letter correspondence, sight word recognition, reading fluency, and comprehension while listening, reading out loud and reading silently.

The evaluation will be used to set goals and tailor a treatment plan to the individual client’s needs. We offer 1:1 intervention for clients of all ages and intensive programs for preschool, elementary, middle and high school students.
Every client is unique and requires a different type of treatment program to meet his or her needs. Clinicians may use a combination of student-centered and more structured approaches to intervention. The early stages of treatment might involve improving attention, spoken language skills, phonological and print awareness, and motivation and excitement surrounding literacy. Later intervention might progress to work on decoding, reading fluency, reading comprehension, spelling and writing.
