SPEECH EVALUATION AND SPEECH THERAPY
A Speech Evaluation determines whether your child’s speech is developing normally and whether or not speech therapy is needed. Based on evaluation results, I develop and implement an individualized therapy plan to meet each child’s needs. Therapy progress and techniques are continually updated and shared with the family to ensure communication and learning success. A treatment plan may also be developed from a recent evaluation or current IEP goals.
SATPAC is an acronym for Systematic Articulation Training Program Accessing Computers. This program is a highly effective tool in articulation remediation. Students achieve generalization more rapidly than with other more traditional therapies used. Because SATPAC is systematic and stresses co-articulation from the earliest phases, students meet their goals very quickly.
