? My child can talk, why does he/she need a Speech Language Pathologist?

A Speech Language Pathologist's job is to help children improve their ability to use and understand speech and language so they can communicate more effectively at school, home or with friends. Communication refers to the different ways we give and receive messages. Communication involves articulation, fluency, voice, and language (including pragmatics).

  • Articulation is the ability to pronounce speech sounds or speech patterns. Difficulty with articulation makes it hard for others to understand your speech and can affect spelling and progress in reading.
  • Fluency is the smoothness in which sounds, syllables, words and phrases are joined together when speaking. Difficulty with fluency is also called Stuttering. Voice is the production of sound using the vocal cavity. Areas of vocal production include quality, pitch, nasality and volume. Difficulty in this area can make your voice sound “funny” to others.
  • Language can be broken into 3 different categories.
    • Receptive language is the ability to understand what others are saying.
    • Expressive language is the ability to express thought, feelings, and ideas verbally or in writing.
    • Pragmatics is the area of language that embraces the use of language in social contexts: knowing what to say, how to say it, and when to say it.

? What is the difference between a speech check up and a speech evaluation?

A speech check up is for parents that aren’t sure if their child is achieving age appropriate developmental milestone in speech and language. This is basically a screening service. Once the speech check up is completed, if the therapist sees a need, a speech evaluation would be the next step. A speech evaluation is an extensive testing process involving medical history, actual speech and language standardized testing and a full written report with a speech diagnosis and plan of treatment.

? What should I bring with me to a speech evaluation appointment?

Please bring the child rested and fed. A prescription from your overseeing physician and any reports from past therapists (IEP, evaluation/discharge report, etc…). The therapist engaged in the evaluation will be asking lots of questions in regards to medical history of the child. (ex: When did the child first start to talk, walk, etc..?) Parent involvement is very important during the speech evaluation.
