Evaluation

Evaluation services are designed to provide information to determine and/or confirm a diagnosis, develop a treatment plan, and monitor progress over time. These services include an interview, assessment and preliminary feedback immediately following the evaluation itself. Additionally a follow-up written report is provided in order to document evaluation results and recommendations.

 

Treatment: Individual and Group Offerings

Individual therapy sessions teach clients and their families to help regain communication skills and compensatory strategies to manage their disorders in activities of daily life. Goals are established jointly with each client and his or her family member(s). Innovative treatment strategies include computer-assisted learning, video taping, and role-play in everyday communicative contexts.

Therapy sessions are tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Clinicians use a variety of techniques and strategies to facilitate progress.

Group therapy sessions provide a realistic communication context in which adults can practice communication skills. This approach provides a supportive social environment with peers to assist in generalization of skills.
