Child/Adolescent Speech-Language Assessments
A speech assessment can help to identify why a person may be struggling to be understood. The speech-language pathologist will listen to how an individual is saying their sounds and will check their oral structures and their functions to try and determine why their speech is being affected.
A language assessment can help to identify why a person is having difficulty using and understanding language. Depending on the concerns, the speech-language pathologist can complete assessments to generate a communication profile for that individual and identify their areas of strengths and challenges. This information can be extremely valuable when a child is struggling academically or socially.
Please contact the speech-language pathologist to discuss your concerns in more detail. A hearing evaluation will be recommended before a speech-language assessment.
