Pine Cone Therapies offers speech and language therapy for a broad scope of disorders, including phonological disorder. Our speech therapy may be in one-to-one and small group sessions.
The first step to effective phonological disorder intervention is an individual, in-depth assessment of speech and cognitive-linguistic skills. The speech and language assessment is conducted by the certified speech-language pathologist. Assessment procedures are chosen based on an individual’s age and the nature of their disorder.
Assessments are usually completed in a 1 to 4 hour span of time. Upon completion of testing, a diagnosis is formulated and a comprehensive report is written. The results of the assessment are discussed with the patient and/or parent and their referring physician. The patient and the therapist collaborate to develop an Individualized Plan of Care.
