Intake/Evaluation Process The intake/evaluation process is the first step in helping our therapists garner a better understanding of your child. They will assess what your child’s strengths are, what they need to work on, and which areas of development they should focus more time on. During the process, a speech therapist will greet you and interact with your child through play or movement activities. This will help our therapists understand communication skills in a more natural context. If your child is able, the therapist will administer a speech assessment to formally evaluate their skills in your area of concern. Once the assessment process is complete, we will create a highly individualized plan of care to address your child’s needs. Here at Can Speak we are a very family oriented center. We will work with all parents/guardians to take the time needed to answer any questions during the process in a very safe and supportive environment!
