Therapy Services

​"A bird does not sing because it has an answer,
it sings because it has a song".  - Maya Angelou

All listed services are available for speech therapy, feeding therapy and occupational therapy.

Evaluation

An evaluation is a review of previous records, patient history, formalized testing (for up to two hours), administration of informal measures (including language sample as necessary), and a written report with scoring, interpretation, additional analyses, and recommendations. Recommendations may incorporate a treatment plan and home program. Therapeutic assessment is conducted as part of the assessment to determine the most appropriate goals for the plan of care. Review of the report with parent is also included.

 

An evaluation may extend to two separate sessions depending on the nature of the difficulties for your child. A complete written report will be available for your review 14 days from the initial assessment. If needed, a plan of care will be sent to your child's primary care physician for signature.

If an evaluation has been completed within the last 6 months, we will submit that report to your insurance carrier before your first session.  Insurance can take 14-21 days to review the submitted request and approve the start of therapy. You can ask your evaluating therapist or pediatrician to fax a copy to 214-935-2457.

Screening

A screening is an informal observation to help determine if a more comprehensive evaluation is necessary. Screenings typically last 15 minutes and involve an observation and a brief parent interview with recommendations. There are no written reports following a screening. Screenings can be scheduled individually or for childcare or daycare facilities.

Individual Therapy

A therapist will meet with your child 1 to 3 times a week for half-hour sessions to implement their treatment plan for a 3-6 month period. The number of times per week is determined by evaluation recommendations.  

 

Therapists will consult with you after each session to report progress during the session, describe any challenges encountered, and provide suggestions as part of their home program and family education. Caregivers are encouraged to ask questions so that they can remain partners in fulfilling their child's communicative goals.

 

Individual therapy incorporates the use of individualized, evidence-based methods and strategies to facilitate attainment of long term and short term goals. Home programs and strategies are utilized as part of the treatment plan to assist in stabilizing and generalizing skills. 

Feeding Evaluation

A feeding evaluation incorporates a review of previous records, patient history, feeding trials, and a written report with interpretation of observation, results, and recommendations.  Recommendations may incorporate a treatment plan and home program. Review of the report with the caregiver is also included.  During a feeding evaluation, further speech and language assessment may be recommended if determined necessary.

Consultation

A consultation is a review of your child's reports, a brief parent interview, an informal observation of your child, a discussion of any concerns or questions a parent may have, and/or coordination with other disciplines, schools or facilities at the parent request.  There are no reports provided with a consultative appointment and fees are charged privately by the hour; however, fees may be pro-rated as needed.  Please contact our clinic for further information.
