Why does my child need a screening?
We provide free screenings to see if your child’s speech and fine motor skills are age appropriate and if a comprehensive evaluation is needed.
What is the difference between a screening and an evaluation?
A screening is a series of tasks and questions to determine if a more extensive evaluation is needed. Screenings are offered free of charge. An evaluation is a standardized and comprehensive assessment used to diagnose a specific impairment and to determine if therapy is recommended.
