What is a speech and language evaluation?
If we decide to evaluate your child's speech and language, a team of special education teachers will meet with you to develop a plan. When we evaluate speech and language we use different tests designed to look at different areas of speech or language, including receptive language(how well your child understands language), expressive language (how well your child uses language), and speech sounds. These tests will help us understand your child and what we can do to help him or her. Once the testing is complete, our special education team will meet with you again to discuss whether your child has qualified for speech and language services.
This is a long process. Please be patient but know that you are free to call me or your child's classroom teacher and that I will be in contact with you whenever I have information for you.
