We offer in-depth, comprehensive evaluations addressing the areas of:

  • Speech (articulation)

  • Expressive and receptive language

  • Auditory processing

  • Feeding

  • Executive Functioning

  • Pragmatics

Evaluations are typically one to two hours in length depending on the areas being assessed and may be split into two sessions depending on the age of the child and their attention span for testing. We offer a complimentary 15 minute interpretation session either in person or over the phone to review the results and recommendations with parents.
