Frequently Asked Questions

How are parents involved in evaluation and therapy?

During the evaluation process, we gather developmental history from parent/caregiver interviews to guide the initial assessment, write treatment goals and develop home programs. Clinicians provide feedback following each session. A Home Program, including suggested activities and other recommendations is provided regularly as a part of the treatment process.

A treatment plan is an individualized set of goals created by the Speech-Language Pathologist to address your child's or adult speech, language, cognitive-linguistic, swallowing-feeding and/or communication needs. The treatment plan may include:

The treatment plan may include:​

Recommendations for therapy or re-screening/re-evaluation at a later time
Initial and long term goals to be addressed during therapy and at home
​Referrals to other professionals (i.e., audiologist, medical specialist, occupational/physical therapist, etc.)
Suggestions for parents/caregivers and educators

What is a Treatment Plan? 

Yes! The therapists at Advanced Speech & Rehab Services believe that children and adults learn best in their natural environment.
