The Center for Speech Excellence
The initial appointment is a 90 minute evaluation. It includes an initial conference regarding your concerns, testing and evaluation of those concerns, and a discussion of results and recommendations. Therapy, consultation or conference appointments are scheduled in either 30 or 60 minute sessions.
Fast ForWord programs take place in our monitored computer lab or monitored as a web-based program that can be used on your computer at home. The program requires one or two hours each day, five days a week for 6-8 weeks, depending on the program. Pre and post testing is recommended for further treatment planning.
Appointment times are available between 9 am and 5 pm, except between 12 pm and 1 pm, Monday through Thursday. We do everything we can to accommodate your schedule, but please be advised that late afternoon slots are in the highest demand. To schedule an appointment please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Progress and Reporting
A full report is generated after the initial evaluation and mailed to you, the referring physician and/or any other provider at your request.
Progress notes are made at every session and a full report generated approximately every three months or after 24 half-hour sessions.
Discharge goals are based on mastery of the skills set forth in the evaluation report, usually 90% accuracy over two or three consecutive sessions and/or age-appropriate scores on standardized tests.
