PEDIATRIC INITIAL EVALUATION

What to expect:

The parent or guardian will complete a case history form. The speech-language pathologist (SLP) will meet with the child for their evaluation. The evaluation will assess receptive/expressive communication, play interactions, pragmatic skills, fluency, feeding/swallowing, and voice. 

Many parents hope an SLP can identify a communication disorder during the first visit, but sometimes a further analysis and careful review takes more time. The SLP will contact parents once the analysis is complete. Following the evaluation, the SLP will provide family with strategies and resources to better help their child.
