Based on your concerns, an initial assessment will be completed to evaluate your child’s communication skills. This includes an informal assessment and a review of your child’s developmental history to determine your child’s strengths and weaknesses. This guides the development of goals that are functional, meaningful, and individualized to your child.
If you have recently received an evaluation from another provider, an assessment may not be necessary.
