Speech Therapy Services
At Community Speech Services, Inc. we strive to provide the best services to our patients and families. Speech-language delays in children may impact future success in school. However, early diagnosis and treatment of delays help to minimize or eliminate these challenges. Likewise, speech-language disorders in adults may affect family relationships, social interactions and even employment opportunities. We provide comprehensive evaluations for children and adults to determine if therapy is needed. Evaluations may include standardized testing, parent interviews, play-based assessments, observations, and language sampling. A thorough evaluation will be completed to determine if therapy services are warranted. Our therapists will work closely with the clients and their family to develop a therapy plan that best meets their needs. Progress is carefully monitored and reported to parents at regular intervals. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to speak with our speech pathologists about what activities can be done at home to improve their child’s communication. Along with incorporating fun and motivating activities during therapy and completion of home programs, the rate of progress is usually excellent.
We also provide speech/language services outside of our office. We have contracts throughout Summit County and Stark County to provide speech/language therapy to a variety of sites and populations. Our therapists work at preschools, private and public schools, group homes, workshops, and many area hospitals. We also provide long-term coverage for local speech-language pathologist as needed. With our wide variety of sites and services, our team of speech-language pathologists have the experience and knowledge to help you or your family member in the best way possible.
If you are unsure about you or your child’s communication skills, we encourage you to contact our office for an evaluation. If therapy is not needed, you’ll be comforted in hearing that speech/language skills are developing at a typical rate. Most of our clients are assigned a weekly, 30-minute therapy time, but the frequency of the therapy visits and length of the session time can be adjusted to each family’s needs.
