Speech-Language Diagnostic Evaluations for Children
Families rely on the UNH Speech-Language-Hearing Center for comprehensive diagnostic evaluations and in many instances look to the Center for an in-depth, second opinion of their child's needs. The UNH SLHC is unique in that it evaluates the school age child, not only at the Center, but also in the context of the school environment. Clinicians may go out to the school in order to develop a full understanding of a child's needs in the classroom and his/her language profile, strengths and weaknesses. The resulting recommendations provide the basis for a comprehensive program that will make the greatest difference for each child's development.
Speech-Language Intervention for Children
|Families are an integral part of services provided to young children.|
Services for children address disorders of language, cognition (memory and attention), speech sound disorders, stuttering, and written language. Intervention is provided to toddlers through high school age students. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in determining treatment goals and family members frequently observe and participate in speech-language intervention at the Center.
The Center's intensive 12-week program offers one-hour sessions three times per week, enabling children to make significant strides in an accelerated time period. This can mean staying at grade level with peers, better social interaction and a more effective learning dynamic in the classroom.
