How to Know if Your Child Needs a Speech Evaluation

Your child may benefit from a Speech Sound Evaluation if any of the following issues apply:

  • Feeling frustrated because they cannot communicate their wants and needs

  • Difficulty being understood when communicating 

  • Falling behind in school 

  • Speech sound errors are impacting their reading, writing, and/or spelling skills 

Our Speech Sound Evaluation Process

We will begin by evaluating your child's communication skills to determine the type, nature, and severity of any delay or disorder that may be present. Our process includes:

  • A parent interview

  • Formal standardized assessment

  • Collecting information while using spontaneous and natural speech

  • Rapport building to establish a therapeutic relationship

  • Education about developmental speech milestones


Following the evaluation, we will work with your family to design a therapy plan. All new clients are required to participate in an evaluation unless they can provide a recent evaluation report from within the past 12 months.

What We Treat

Late Talkers • Language Delays • Early Intervention
Articulation Disorders • Phonological Disorders • Motor Speech Disorders
Expressive & Receptive Language Disorders • Play & Social Communication Delays

Our Approach to Speech Therapy

West Valley's approach to speech therapy is 3-pronged:


We believe in the power of play

We are relationship-centered

We focus on your whole family

Children learn best when they are safe, supported, and motivated to try new, hard things. We take the time to build rapport with our clients by getting to know their interests and incorporating play into our sessions. Plus, we get parents involved throughout the therapy process to make sure that we are all working toward a common goal.

How We Can Help Your Child Communicate & Connect

Therapy sessions at West Valley Speech Therapy are fun, creative, and powerfully effective! We support your child's speech, language, and social development by building upon the foundation of three essential developmental skills: turn taking, joint attention, and the concept of cause and effect​. Our goal is to improve your child's ability to interact with others, understand words and routines, express their thoughts and feelings, develop all age-appropriate speech sounds, and communicate with confidence!

We use evidence-based therapy approaches and integrate proven methods learned from It Takes Two To Talk®, Learn with Less®, and a variety of Simon Says Orofacial Myology Treatment programs: Tongue Tips, Tiny Tongue Tips, and Thumps Up!
