Speech and Language Evaluations
Speech and language evaluations are necessary to determine if a communication delay/disorder is present. An evaluation will also reveal the degree of the delay/disorder. Formal and informal testing can be done in the areas of receptive and expressive language, articulation, vocabulary, basic concepts, and early childhood development. The results that are obtained from testing help us to determine appropriate goals for treatment, if warranted. Evaluation results also give us a baseline of skills to which we can measure the effectiveness of our treatment.
Individual and Group Treatment
Based on the needs of individual patients, recommendations will be made for treatment. Most patients who present with a delay/disorder will receive a recommendation for individual treatment, however there are some patients who will benefit from group therapy alone or in addition to individual treatment. At Jones Therapy Services families are an integral part of the treatment process. Our clients and families can expect to be actively involved in therapy and given valuable information on how to facilitate carryover of targeted goals in the home and community environments.
