Individual Speech and Language Therapy
Therapy sessions are provided in a natural environment (home, community facility) to ensure carryover of skills and increase the involvement of relevant family members or caregivers. Sessions are 60 minutes. Therapy programs are designed to meet the specific needs of the client. No two therapy programs are alike.
Speech and Language Evaluations
Evaluations are comprehensive and take place in a natural environment. The evaluation session includes a thorough interview with the client and/or the family/caregiver, assessment of all speech and language skills, and discussion of the assessment results.
At Liberty Speech Associates LLC, we provide telepractice sessions for the following purposes: accent modification, counseling, speech-language evaluations and treatment, speech-language screenings, and collaboration with related professionals. We use a free and encrypted platform called WebEx to provide the services, which allows us to see our clients in real-time, record the interactions for future review (with written permission), and share content from our computer screen to theirs. For more information about telepractice, check out this blog post.
Everyone has an accent, but only some individuals may choose to modify their accent to suit their professional or educational goals. Our accent modification services aim to improve the English pronunciation of those with regional or foreign accents. Following a comprehensive evaluation, an accent modification program will be developed to meet the specific needs of the client. No two programs are alike. Accent modification is an elective service and is not considered therapy.
