Therapy
Therapy is mostly delivered in an individual setting for 30 minutes (with the exception of the Accent Modification program). Time is also built-in to consult with the parent or care- provider after EACH session for the importance of carryover opportunities outside of the therapy setting. If the opportunity allows, a small group setting might be recommended as long as each client can have their goals met within this setting.

Evaluations
At North Shore Speech & Language Services, evaluations of speech and language include formal testing, informal assessment, clinical observation of your child's abilities, as well as parental input regarding your child's history of development across ALL domains, previous and current therapies and overall concerns and areas of desired progress.

Evaluations are scheduled for at least 2 hours, sometimes longer depending upon the areas of concern. These comprehensive evaluations assess receptive & expressive language skills, intelligibility and articulation, pragmatics and nonverbal communication skills, and oral motor functioning including assessment of structures, motor planning and execution abilities. Following the evaluation, a very detailed report is written which describes your child's level of functioning, relative strengths and weaknesses, clinical observations, and specific recommendations for therapy are included in this thorough
4-7 page report. A comprehensive treatment plan is also included that the family can have NSSLS address within therapy OR take back to the school and request that it be implemented by specialists in that setting.

Contact North Shore Speech & Language Services to schedule an evaluation.
