What is the difference between a screening and an assessment/evaluation? A screening is a quick look at skills that is then used to make recommendations which could include a full assessment/evaluation. An assessment is a more in-depth experience that delves deeper in to a child’s strengths and weaknesses to make more specific recommendations and create a plan of care if necessary.
May is Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM), and for the past 12 years, STG has celebrated by offering a FREE screening. Licensed speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and an audiologist are teaming up on Saturday, May 4th to offer this screening again. If you have a child age 3 to 6 and are concerned about his/her speech-language skills, fine-motor/sensory skills, or hearing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your slot (slots do fill up, so don’t wait to sign up!).
Options and community resources will be shared if a full assessment/evaluation is recommended based on results from the screening. For 2019, the screening is scheduled for Saturday, May 4th from 10am until 2pm. Again, if you have questions or concerns in regard to your child's skills, this is your chance to come meet the professionals who have years of experience and knowledge in this area!
