Simply Speaking offers both consultations and evaluations.


Consultations gather relevant information regarding the client, including any previous evaluations or assessments. A consultation is usually warranted when the client has already been diagnosed and requires treatment. The consultation serves to determine the best approach to the communication needs of the client, and to create appropriate treatment goals. Following the consultation, a short report outlining a treatment plan is provided within two weeks.


Comprehensive evaluations are conducted when a client has not yet been diagnosed or treated. Evaluations use a combination of standardized testing, parent or client interviews, and informal observation. The process begins with the completion of an intake form, which helps the therapist select appropriate testing materials and provides background information on the client in need of services. The evaluation is then conducted in the client’s home or school. Assessment results will include recommendations such as whether therapy is warranted, as well as the frequency and length of treatment sessions. A full report with an outlined treatment plan is provided within two weeks.


The staff at Simply Speaking provides in-home speech and language services to clients of all ages (infancy to adult), building speech and language skills through various programs and techniques, homework activities and family education. Therapy sessions are typically 45 minutes in length, but may be shorter for younger children. To ensure the highest quality of therapy, services are provided on an individual basis and are always accompanied by home practice programs to allow for optimal carry-over of skills learned in each session. Simply Speaking is devoted to helping clients achieve their ultimate goal of effective communication.
