During the academic year, the Center offers speech-language diagnostic services for children and adults. These services may include language learning disability evaluation, pediatric speech evaluation, and cognitive communication assessments. More specifically, clinicians provide insightful diagnosis of language, cognition (memory and attention), speech sound disorders, stuttering, written language and voice disorders. Based on an in-depth assessment, a customized recommendation may be offered, if warranted, for speech-language treatment.
Specifically for children, the Speech-Language-Hearing Center offers comprehensive diagnostic assessments that many parents seek out as a second opinion of their child's needs. To augment the one-on-one in-depth evaluation that is provided at the the Center for school-age children, clinicians go out to the child's school to interview teachers and special educators, observe classroom dynamics, and review learning materials. This process results in a multi-dimensional profile of the child's strengths and weaknesses with appropriate therapeutic recommendations to best service each child's needs.
