Getting Started

Getting started is as simple as scheduling an evaluation. If you are not certain whether speech therapy is what you need, call us to schedule a brief telephone consultation with one of our therapists.

After you have scheduled your first appointment, download and complete the intake forms on this page. You may email or fax them back to us before your appointment. A therapist may contact you before your appointment to discuss the information on the intake forms.

At the beginning of the evaluation, the therapist will spend a few minutes establishing a rapport with the patient.

The Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) will conduct formal and informal testing and spend some time speaking with the patient, parent or caregiver to hear and understand their concerns and the goals they desire to be achieved. Children may be engaged in informal play routines to elicit a speech-language sample. An oral motor examination may also be conducted.

Following the evaluation, the SLP will write a report setting forth the results of the testing. A copy of the report will be provided to you and your physician should it authorized.
