Speech Program

Speech Therapist and Child

 

At Easterseals Northern Ohio, our speech-language pathologists provide high-quality speech and language services to ensure that all children reach their highest potential.  We provide services that promote effective communication for children of all abilities.

Speech-Language Screenings

Speech-language, hearing and vision screenings are available to children at our office locations as well as at select daycare centers, schools, HeadStarts and other community facilities.

Screenings are designed to do a quick assessment of speech-language abilities to help determine if a comprehensive evaluation is necessary.

Speech-Language Evaluations

Comprehensive speech-language evaluations assess a child's communication skills.  Results and recommendations are provided to parents in a detailed report at the time of the evaluation.

Speech-Language Therapy

During one-on-one sessions, speech-language therapy helps develop communication skills.  Goals and objectives are designed to meet each child's specific needs.  Therapy techniques are based on the nature and severity of difficulties and the age of the child.  Therapy sessions are available year round.

Summer Speech-Language Therapy

Individualized summer speech-language therapy programs help maintain continuity and improve skills learned during the preceding school year.
