Speech Language Assessment

The first step is an evaluation or an assessment. We complete both formal and informal assessments to diagnose the areas of deficit and the severity of the speech language deficit. We have access to a variety of formal tools for various aspects of language such as the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals (CELF), Goldman Fristoe Test of Articulation (GFTA), Grey Oral Reading Test (GORT) etc. Our informal assessments rely on creating a naturalistic environment, making clinical observations and use of clinical expertise. Whether formal or informal, speech language assessments with our registered speech therapists are fun and engaging. We use information collected in speech-language assessments to develop personalized and individualized speech-language goals.


Speech Therapy Scarborough

Speech Therapy usually happens once a week or twice a week. At speech therapy works we are willing to provide therapy in your naturalistic environment- speech therapy at home, speech therapy at school or speech therapy at day care. We address speech language goals or targets that are developed during the assessment. We address a variety of issues including language delay, articulation difficulties, pronunciation difficulties, reading difficulties, stuttering, writing difficulties and learning difficulties. Speech therapy with children can be fun and goal oriented by engaging children in play based and creative activities.
