A thorough evaluation is the basis of an accurate diagnosis. Once the evaluation is completed, results are shared with the client and their families to help them understand the origin of the problem and the best strategies for treatment.
Clients and their families are active participants in the therapy process. Detailed information is provided to ensure a complete understanding of the underlying source of the speech and/or swallowing deficit.
Detailed home treatment plans are developed with the client and families to ensure they understand and implement techniques to support speech and swallowing treatment goals.
