Speech & Language Services

Speech & Language Center of Northern Virginia


Outpatient Services

Screenings are available to identify children who may be at risk for speech and language delays. The screening provides a brief summary of a child's speech, language, and hearing skills. From these results, the speech-language pathologist determines whether skills seem to be age-appropriate or require further evaluation.

A comprehensive assessment determines strengths and weaknesses of the child's speech and language skills and defines the goals for therapy. Depending on the focus of the assessment, standardized tests, parent questionnaires, informal sampling, and other tools are used to gather information regarding the child's abilities.
