MEET WITH THERAPIST

As with any other relationship, personal or professional, the first step is simply to say “hello.” This allows the client and the therapist to get to know each other, and get a sense of the client’s needs and expectations. The initial assessment will take place during this first meeting.

PROVIDE FORMAL OR INFORMAL ASSESSMENT

An informal assessment will be initiated at the individual’s first contact with a speech language pathologist. This takes place with one of our registered speech-language pathologists. In cases where an individual has previously undergone treatment, the SLP will also review documentation of the client’s treatment history. The goal of this process is to establish a baseline upon which to build a program. In some cases it may be determined that a formal assessment would be beneficial; this takes place only after discussion with the parents and/or client and a decision is made that this would be the best way to proceed.

CREATE THERAPY PLAN / STRATEGY

Making headway requires a clear roadmap. Based on the assessment, the therapist will tailor a program designed specifically for each client. Where appropriate, referrals to other specialists will also be made. During the course of treatment, the therapist constantly adjusts the program based on the progress and needs of the individual. Each of the therapists at ASC works to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field - and incorporates new modes of treatment when appropriate. The therapy strategy may include individual therapy and/or group therapy.

Social language groups are typically available for both a Fall course and a Winter course for children between the ages of 4 and 20. Each of these sessions is comprised of 10 one-hour sessions over 10 consecutive weeks. On some occasions a shorter Spring or Summer course may be available. An assessment is required prior to the student’s enrolment in the group. The groups are designed to assist children with the art of social interaction and communication.

Depending on therapist availability, individual intensive programs can be available in the summer months.
