speech, language and hearing screenings!

It’s that time of year again! Speech Start has set up dates with some local preschools to offer a speech, language, and hearing screening to students who would like to participate. A screening is different from a full evaluation. A screening is conducted to determine any findings that could require a complete evaluation. We look at speech development, different areas of language, and conduct a hearing screening. Local preschools, if you would like us to provide this service please contact our office for more information! Parents, if this is a service you would like to see offered in your preschool, let them know!  We look forward to helping you!

Happy Holidays!

We at Speech Start would like to wish our families and friends happy holidays and a very happy and healthy new year! We hope you enjoy this time with loved ones and make many memories. We will be working on a modified schedule for two weeks starting this coming Monday December 22. Please check with your therapist about available therapy times for Monday and Tuesday (12/22, 12/23, 12/29, 12/30).

September is here!

It’s that time of year again! We want to wish all of our Speech Start families and friends a fun, exciting, and successful new school year! The new session schedules begin this week. If you have any questions about your schedule or the back-to-school transition please call the office.

Summer is in full swing at Speech Start

We hope all of our families are having a fantastic summer! Our summer groups have been very busy! The older kids have been having fun with games and cooking activities. Some of our trips to date have included mini golf, boardwalk, and lunch at the local pizzeria. The younger groups have been having a blast with activities such as crafts, water play races, a fun “campout” complete with stories around our “campfire,” and fun cooking activities as well.

As the summer moves forward we will begin scheduling for our fall/school year session. Please start to think about possible times/days that you are available for therapy and keep a look out for the schedule request forms which will be at the front desk. We ask that you provide three possible day and time options and we will do our best to accommodate!

We hope you continue to have a fun summer and stay cool!
