Assessment of current skill level is done using parent/caretaker/client interview, standardized and criterion-referenced evaluation tools, observation of social interaction and communication skills, and clinical analysis of speech and language samples. Results of the evaluation are given verbally and explained at the time of the assessment, or in a follow up phone call. We do not write evaluation reports unless specifically requested ahead of time. Any needed reports are billed at $190/hour for write-up time (typically 1-3 hours depending on the extent of the evaluation done.) The clinician will make a recommendation for frequency of therapy. Appropriate goals are developed with the client’s input to focus on aspects that will most benefit overall communication and align with the client’s priorities and values. Printed resources will be provided and reviewed at the time of the visit.
