A comprehensive assessment of speech-language & communication skills is the first step leading to therapy. The process of assessment will begin with an initial meeting with you to understand your concerns, background and gathering other important details. This will be followed up by observing the child in the home environment and child-adult interaction. Parents may sometimes be advised to share brief video clips on how they engage with the child and various activities at home and/or school that the child is involved in to get a wholistic picture.
We will take a peak into three main areas: Home/school/work-environment, communication opportunities in all these environments and the communication needs of the child. We will then arrive at SMART (Small, measurable, Agreed Upon, Realistic & Time-bound) goals and decide upon the best suited service-delivery model (sessions) for you and your child.
During an online session, the presence of a facilitator (parent, sibling, family member) may be necessary and is often recommended for most children and young adults.
