***Only virtual services available at this time***
WonderTree Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) can help by supporting you and your family via assessment, parent support, and child based therapy.
Some common areas that our SLP specialize in offering support:
Build their vocabulary and ability to communicate their needs and wants
Speak more clearly (articulation, phonology, motor-speech)
Understand more (listening skills and receptive language)
Play with others (social-pragmatics, emotional self-regulation, and social-conversational skills)
Speak using sentences (expressive language – grammar, morphology and syntax)
Speak more fluently or with a more typical sounding voice
Reach their fullest potential with enthusiasm and pride
Use communication aids/ Augmentative Alternative Communication (PEC, core boards, ASL/SEE, etc.)
WonderTree Speech and Language Pathologists specialize in assessing your child's language abilities and determining if/what kind of support is recommended. WonderTree provides evidence-based interventions and prides itself on interventions founded on a well-done initial assessment. Based on the assessment, a treatment plan will be created to target key skills.
Initial Assessment for Treatment
The first session will consist of a functional assessment to understand your child's strengths, areas of need, and develop a treatment program.
Includes a 50 min direct assessment session with parent and child present, as well as background review, and documentation
Session length and frequency varies depending on your child’s age and their communication goals. Sessions are typically scheduled for 30 to 45 minutes on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Our SLP will work with your family to create a treatment plan that includes the number of sessions and length of sessions that would be most beneficial.

Based on session length
Comprehensive Standardized Assessment
Does your child require a formal assessment for diagnosis or detailed age- and/or grade-specific results for academic reasons? If the answer is yes, then a comprehensive standardized assessment would be helpful. This type of assessment uses standardized tools to better understand your child's unique profile, and create detailed recommendations for educational interventions, and for speech therapy.
Each assessment is tailored to each child's presenting concerns. The timing of direct assessment testing and report writing will vary depending on the complexity of presenting concerns.
Rate: $540 - $810
Includes comprehensive background review,
direct assessment testing, scoring, and report writing
