SPEECH SOUND ASSESSMENT

A speech sound assessment provides information regarding articulation & phonology skills, such as…

  • Which speech sounds are produced in error

  • In what context do the errors exist (words, phrases, sentences, etc)

  • Stimulability of sounds produced in error, when given strategies to assist in correct production

  • Other diagnoses that may contribute to the speech delay (e.g. Apraxia, Dysarthria, etc). 

  •  How your child’s speech compares to other children his/her age

  • Use of language for social purposes (e.g. greeting, initiating conversation, commenting, etc.)

  • How your child’s language skills compare to same-age peers
