What to Expect from a Treatment Session

What to Expect?

Once the evaluation is completed, a plan of care is developed based on the child’s specific delays.  The child will work on the specific targeted goals  during each session.   Caregivers can observe the sessions and will always be brought back a few minutes before the end of the treatment to discuss the session and to be provided with activities to be carried over at home.  Any other therapist or educators involved with the child will be contacted (with the parents consent) to make sure every one is working towards the same goals.

How Long Will My Child Need Speech Therapy?

The length of therapy varies for each child.  Therapy typically lasts approximately from 6 months to a few years. Goals and objectives are measured to determine progress throughout each session. The individual therapy session typically lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour.  The session length will be determined based on each child’s needs.
