Before therapy is begun, a child is tested to determine his or her specific problem. The evaluation includes:
• Speech and Language Testing
• Developmental Testing
Staff reviews the test results and formulates a treatment plan. A conference is then held with the childs parents. If it is determined that the childs disability can be corrected, he or she is accepted into an individualized program. Parent observation is mandatory in the case of young children. Counseling is available through the Parent Support Group.
A trusting relationship is established with children who see the therapist on a one-to-one basis several times a week. Direct therapy focuses on the improvement of the communication disorder and ultimately the life-style of the family. A therapist may be working on behavior change, speech intelligibility, word finding activities, reading (decoding and comprehension), writing, and /or auditory understanding.
Language Pathologists are highly trained speech therapists who are licensed by the State of California and certified by the American Association of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
These therapists are specialists with in-depth knowledge of the relationship between oral and written language, the impact of oral language impairments on the development of reading skills and effective instructional strategies for the classroom setting.
