Glossary

 

Consultation: A free 15-20 minute conversation to discuss client concerns, therapy services, and options. 
 

Screening: An informal assessment that is conducted when there are concerns regarding a child's communication. The screening is an important tool to determine if a formal, comprehensive evaluation is needed. 

Evaluation: A formal assessment that typically takes 1-2+ hours. Includes a comprehensive evaluation report that contains performance on all testing tasks, recommendations regarding therapy, and specific goals for therapy.  A short 20-30 minute informal assessment to determine need for further formal evaluation. Screenings will provide parents with a brief summary and recommendation for further evaluation, if needed.
