Free Screenings Available for Children

Speech and language screenings are a wonderful tool to determine if a child is developing within the “average” range when compared to other children his or her age. Screening tests identify conditions that might need further assessment and are an important part of well-child health care.

  • Is your child not speaking as much or as clear as their peers?
  • Do you have concerns, but are just not sure if your child needs speech or language therapy?
  • Do you feel your child is delayed in speech, has difficulty learning basic things, is withdrawn, or something just seems wrong?

Children who do not pass the screening will be recommended for further assessment or a full comprehensive evaluation.  

Call us today at 718-509-4909 to schedule your child’s free screening.
