COVID-19

Considering COVID-19 and related risks in and around the City of Houston (and elsewhere in Texas) our top priority is keeping our clients and families safe. Tele-health is an evidence-based service that we provide online over a secure platform. Many children and families respond very well and love the convenience of this set-up. Participating clients will need access to a good internet connection, a device with a webcam, and a headset.

Our Services 
 
We are committed to providing the highest quality services to children and their families through individualized evaluation and treatment planning. We help children use effective communication in their natural environments to increase their confidence and overall quality of life. Along with any service, we teach family members and caregivers how to help their children reach goals at home and in the community. As a parent/family member you are an integral part of your kiddo's treatment plan! 
 
Consultations:
COMPLIMENTARY Phone Consultation: A FREE service for the purpose of Q and A, parent/caregiver education and discussion about services, as well as initial exchange of relevant client information. 

Screenings: 

Ask us about our Speech and Language Screenings! These are generally used in the daycare and preschool settings to determine whether or not a child needs further evaluation, related to speech sound production, language skills, or otherwise. We are advocates of early intervention and helping kids along with their development as best we can. 

Assessments: 

1. Complete/Comprehensive Assessment 

  • Speech Assessment (Oral Motor Skills- strength and range of motion of oral structures for the purpose of functional speech, Articulation- speech sounds, Phonological- speech sound system, and/or Stuttering/Fluency Evaluation) PLUS...

  • Language Assessment (Receptive Language- comprehension of language, Expressive Language- production/use of language). 

  • Whether we schedule a complete assessment, including all areas above, or just a specific AREA of assessment, we'll determine whether a child may benefit from private speech and/or language therapy in areas of concern. If your child has participated in a recent assessment through a school district, early intervention program, another private setting, etc. and/or has an active IEP from your school district, we'll be happy to review these documents and consider whether the evaluation is appropriate to use for our treatment plan development. If so, we can begin therapy more quickly!

​2. Speech Only Assessment 

 

  • Oral Motor Skills Evaluation, Articulation, Phonological, and/or Stuttering Evaluation 

​3. Language Only Assessment

Reminder:

(Regarding Assessments):

If your child has had a speech and language assessment completed in the past 6 months to one year, (relatively recent) and/or has an active IEP through a school district (and the information remains relevant), we can begin therapy on the fast track (without the Comprehensive Assessment listed above)!
