Speech Therapy Evaluation and Treatment Process

Speech Therapy Evaluation and Treatment Process


Hello and welcome to Therapy Playground my name is Sonia Singh, I’m a speech-language pathologist, and I’m Lisa McInnis a speech-language pathologist Today we’re here to talk a little bit about evaluation and treatment process for speech therapy primarily. And just for some support for parents who have concerns. OK what would you say
to parents who ware thinking about possible therapy but they’re not sure if they should start the process or not? concern now too early it’s too early to
go ahead and get started early intervention actually highly recommended
and we’re talking about early intervention time you have three years
where trial skills are children to really enhance their skills and to
arrive with that type of support for help your child and who are who are
schooling that the parent half and concern they get those concerned at RAF
now and not wait and see game where they might be missing bolts critical period
for me sure parents concern for their child reporting
teaching language really what we’re saying is you don’t want to wait wanna go ahead in opinion services as
soon as possible in with the with the speech go ahead and call out any
concerns you may have this deadly better get that started eating right can you
describe the air is made with president oh look at a truck each their speech
sounds and the parents will get there are made with what they what they’re
actually produce a trial fluency titled quality child memory and it will be a
while and also looking at here it just likes to see service first right right
here and they were pretty much tell them what their concerns are so that they can
get even see or to setting or the company that will provide each services
and from there the office and set up the first united nation will be scheduled this
really help parents to get their fifteen they don’t have time to fill out
paperwork will go over a trial of developmental history go over their
developmental milestones and will also take the time to recruit actually all
sections that are there because they’re not overview of the trial that their
concerns and the trial right for us to gather information so that we can you
sure as a whole weekend that decision for assessment right so what information
is gathered from the paratrooper paperwork and concerns are presented
what happens next in that evaluation session asked you about your child and a few
minutes and go over a wall paper will go over to me and their interaction with
her children getting a little bit of a clinical observation of the trial of the
whole and parents can be used and that their role to disable the concerns and
environmental history therapists to interact with the trial
not so much so that childhood and really me tame inflation of testing and so that
measures her sure it’s really important that there is does have with the child want them to perform independently or
assessment any interference will render the
standard procedures at the test already balanced we do that we are given the
time and the parent may may stay that way sometimes hold for parents to sit
back and just kind of watch their her interact with their child but
it’s really important for us when they do independently to really get your
picture that their children that’s probably in the evaluation that they
either they’re able to sit and be part of the time or that the extra mile it’s
really hard from house to house your own child to not participate with their
businesses with sibling and having fun and playing games and doing so you know
targeted therapies to distract attention to me he might respond so that the
intervention of taxing yeah it help if we can’t have her arrested time which
may consider trying to get child care for other options so what’s missing in
action the next step is for were there to you
speak with a parent about the results and also provide recommendations based
on the results of their thing so here it and then what happens sentiment is there will be special right
sometimes there are actual sections that the therapist wants to look at you
through practice how many times so there are they will contact you later about
their gatherings sometimes we do need to process
everything from the way he should wear all the data that is it always happens
we should be home around it might be the first time that your trials of being
seen by a specialist and that the parents receiving their provision that
their trials have delays me how these diagnoses place around but it’s really
important to realize that is not good news is that just know that you could be
something that could be ameliorated with time can you talk a little bit out that
these yeah we’ll be there for a time it just depends on the area of difficulty
for example it’s not common speech difficulty and for that child and her
goals within 30 months to a year does happen so does not necessarily have to
follow her out there like right out of her homework morbidity is that may into
another thing that might deliver duration of treatment is there are
factors that may be involved in a proper table order may be looking at lower
prices and the impact it through the autism spectrum disorder so it just hit
but there are other disorders that child usually would be there for longer and
that’s not me who diagnose you travel with a child would be that other ended
they would have had that other diagnose you could be that long term was right
there when it comes to their be when we go out there and be looking at child as
a whole lot of weaknesses we look at how serious and how we could
her model bass highway intersection sometimes you might take a few year
sometimes followed me reached their developmental milestones and there be
and services and you to come back preparing later be master goal for them
and then recommendation made her child to come back length of time because
there may be a child may have difficulties with or for example if they
still are demonstrating that are not significant time but maybe later down
the road take a look at that job to make sure
that they are correctly within an appropriate time can you tell us a
little bit about intervention and howie shoes intervention and involvement there
or they write research methods once the assessment process we look at
our approaches and his lawyer for that individual child’s right and somehow the
trials me how I know Caesars on condition that once more and then I
don’t know how many common with that see diagnose you and that’s that it will not
work without some kind of just how much I’ll be there as a whole whole picture
of them individual and we really look at how we can take our proud of you can
take our intervention to that he thought riled sure absolutely I think it’s also
for here it’s nice to be here always always gathered information collecting
data they’re making decisions based on whatever so we based our next their
sessions off of that child her work in the section that day so hot we lacked in
town adjusting our strategy to meet their
child’s needs in to make sure that the goals are right talk about there are always at work out
and will create arsenault you and really look at how they can best
meet your trial to me and that’s how hippos developmental milestone
absolutely so intervention terms that we are notices
which is really just a prediction that Labor’s yeah meetings about mental
models in the lower rate now child is reaching a milestone in an
abnormal heart rate went to know that feeds you leave disorders are actually
won the most common concern there are highly prevalent in children preschool
kids are going to have a goalie issues or delays or something that is
really essential for true that the concept of character and that’s
typically tour last part of a process where a child is expected to take what
they learn is over there into their everyday and so there we can
do that one of the one of them is to really talk to their parents and its
cool do this may be true homework sometimes I don’t worry about
it and they will come back and report to us that he will not we don’t want you
encouraging correct practice and to the point where it’s appropriate to be
working on a bus outside of there being a little bit about her trial here and
there to help at all and replacement therapy is really really essential to our city
is initiating therapy sessions on regular basis as scheduled has the chance for their skills so it’s
really important that the trial and change their regular basis and another
thing that is just how just generally their ability to extend its an essential
skill that is able to maintain an extension to the there is any gauge in
the 32 teams does that make progress is there are occasions where you’re
actually in a process that’s really our ethical responsibility to talk with that
possibly could be in place and then maybe revisiting Beach there’ll be a
later date because we really need that child to be able to and has to be able
to participate in activities with us so that we can make progress and somehow we
should be eating while drug treatment of me talking about going to other
providers they might tell you to go to you get an occupational therapy psychologist in the 300 the buyers its
specialized in child development and we feel in there is a concern and how other
areas could work together and really 40 sure it’s really it’s really hard for us
to see another baby live so we do a lot of consulting with parents to talk about
it we see other things were conservative will be trial motivation to work
together with parents and just across the settings just really child we can
have your heart healer modification strategies so we talked to the trial you know right where you said that her
to the game today and just building that overall sense of achievement and that
sense of motivation to common want to show you that could be a huge factor
that will determine how well they prepare to be another each which they
start intervention so we talked about for early intervention and how that’s
important well I just overall it has to be a lot harder to determine how long it
will take to get in there when we can best support their neurological
connections in the rain and there to support and strengthen those connections
so that they are mean the skills enhancing their development this brings
