When you bring your child to see licensed speech therapist Stacey Miller, she’ll employ a wide range of standardized tests to analyze your child’s ability and capability in all areas of speech and language development. With this information, Stacey Miller can customize a treatment plan that targets the specific areas of speech and language that need improvement. These evaluations will examine receptive language and what your child understands in terms of semantics and syntax. It will evaluate your child’s use of expressive language and if they can accurately express themselves. It will also test articulation, identifying any trouble sounds or problems with auditory processing. In addition to discovering speech and language-related problems, we may also assess oral motor and feeding skills to determine if the mouth muscles are undeveloped or underutilized.
Before any speech therapy begins, families will be provided with a detailed report exploring all the strengths and weaknesses of their child’s speech and language abilities. Our Manhattan pediatric speech therapist will thoroughly explain the findings of this assessment to you, as well as establish individual aims and objectives. As a trusted speech therapist working in Manhattan, Stacey Miller can help your child lead a fuller and more bountiful life. If you notice any distinct voice, attention, cognition, speech or communication problems affecting the way your child interacts with the world around them, bring them to see Stacey Miller for a speech and language assessment.
