Evaluations


We offer comprehensive speech-language and occupational therapy evaluations tailor-made to fit the needs of your child. We work closely with parents and teachers to determine the best approach for your child's therapy needs.
An evaluation is the first important step in the therapeutic process. This consists of parent-report measures, relevant standardized testing and other informal assessments/observations while interacting with your child. After the evaluation, a comprehensive written report will be provided promptly. A treatment plan is developed as part of a collaborative process with the family, creating specific therapy goals and recommendations for your child.




Consultations


We offer a unique model, bridging the gap between office therapy and home or school progress. Our speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists are passionate and work closely together making sure your child is reaching their full potential. We collaborate with teachers, specialists and other related service providers to promote generalization of skills across multiple settings, involving school visits, home visits, school placement recommendations and referrals.




Thumb Sucking Program


Does your child suck their thumb? Have they tried anything and everything but nothing seems to work? Speech Zone proudly offers a fun and positive thumb-sucking remediation program for your child! This program has worked for thousands of children to get rid of their thumb sucking habits! Children ages 4 and older will benefit by not only eliminating the habit, but by showing improvements with overall mouth posture, tongue placement, dentition and speech.

Babies use a pacifier or suck their thumbs in order to provide comfort and gratification. By age 4, children no longer require this need to self-soothe; it becomes purely habitual. Prolonged thumb sucking could have negative effects on a child’s speech, dentition, fine motor skills of affected finger, feeding, sleep and overall self-confidence.

Our program consists of an initial consultative phone call, initial visit in office, follow up visits every 10, 20, 30 and 60 days. Daily positive reinforcement and encouragement is vital for a child’s emotional success as well as to the success of this program!
