Speech and Language Therapy

Whole Child Therapy Services provides speech and language evaluations and therapy services for children ages birth to 18 years. We strive to provide the best quality of care guided by comprehensive evaluations. We specialize in a wide variety of evidence-based speech and language therapy approaches that enable each child to maximize their full potential, including Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions (NDBI) for children with autism. As each child is unique, therapy approaches are highly individualized and we always take into consideration the whole child. Our mission is to address communication needs based on individual development, learning styles, interests, and strengths. Coupled with full parent participation and collaboration, children will develop the necessary skills they need in order to connect with the world around them.

Evaluations

Our therapists provide comprehensive speech-language evaluations for children of all ages. Our evaluations are typically a combination of standardized assessments, parent input, conversation, observation, and therapist-client interaction.  

A complete evaluation allows the therapist to identify a child's strengths and challenges and understand how to best approach therapy. 

Following the evaluation, you will be provided with a written report and together we will determine the most appropriate treatment plan and goals. 

Speech Therapy

Using evidence-based approaches, we provide engaging and individualized therapy in a safe and family-friendly environment. Speech and language therapy is a thoughtful combination of direct interaction with the child and parent coaching and collaboration.

Our practice truly believes that since each child's challenges are unique, the frequency and duration of therapy should always match the need. Since 2014, we have been committed to offering sessions that range from 30 to 60-minutes, 1-3 times a week. Session length and frequency vary based on factors including availability, severity, and level of need.
