Nearly 1 in 12 (7.7%) children ages 3 to 17 has had a speech-language disorder. The prevalence of a disorder is highest among children ages 3 to 6 (11.0%). Speech Language Screenings are a short measure of a child’s communication skills that takes 15-30 minutes. It includes a teacher consultation and a formal screening assessment. Parents or designated caregivers will receive screening results that indicate how a child is functioning within age-expected norms. It may also include recommendations for either a full evaluation, monitoring for 6 months, or a referral to another professional. Screenings can be performed at your child's private day care or school setting without a parent present as long as a permission form has been completed and signed.
Speech Language Evaluations are an intensive measure of a child’s communication skills that takes 1 to 2 hours. A full evaluation includes formal and informal assessments selected based on parental concerns, a speech-language screening, a doctor's referral, and/or clinician observations and judgments. Parents or designated caregivers will receive evaluation results that indicate how a child is functioning within age-expected norms. It may also include recommendations for initiation of therapy services, home programs, or referral to another specialty such as an ENT. The state of SC requires that initial speech-language evaluations are conducted in-person, however, if a child has been previously determined to be a good candidate for teletherapy, re-evaluations may be conducted through virtual platforms.
Speech-language sessions are scheduled with a licensed and certified Speech Language Pathologist at a frequency determined by evaluation results and scheduling availability. We offer parents the convenience and flexibility of providing speech-language therapy in your child's private day care, private school, and in-home settings. We will work closely with parents or designated caregivers by sharing speech-language growth and providing home carryover activities to help achieve your child's goals. In-person therapy services are offered local to the providing clinician in Columbus, GA.
We understand that speech and language development involves the whole family and environment. We understand that the progress with speech-language goals is most evident when development goes beyond the therapy session. We understand many do not realize the benefits and equivalency of Teletherapy services. That's why we offer FREE 15 minute initial consultations to parents and caregivers who have concerns about their child's speech language development and Teletherapy candidacy.
Research demonstrates that speech langauge services delivered virtually yield equivalent treatment outcomes to services delivered in-person.

If you think that your child isn't communicating effectively or is delayed compared to his or her peers, open a conversation with your pediatrician, day care provider or teacher. They will be able to help you analyze whether or not there is a need for a speech-language screening or evaluation. Angela Hancock is also more than happy to discuss developmental speech and langauge norms with you to determine if there is a need for a screening or evaluation.
At this time, in-person speech language and therapy sessions are offered only to those located in the Columbus, GA area.
YES! Research shows that teletherapy services are EQUIVALENT to in-person services if your child is a good candidate. Angela has over 5 years of teletherapy experience to bring to your child’s virtual speech sessions.
We recommend that you have 1) a personal device, 2) WI-FI or internet access, and 3) working camera and audio. A smart device no smaller than a mini iPAD or laptop/desktop computer with a camera is best for viewing materials. We recommend using a headset, but this is a personal preference.
We will work with you to engage your child in the teletherapy session or provide consultation for a better environmental set up such as flexible seating.
A child can be referred for speech therapy by a parent, pediatrician, physician, dentist, early interventionist, psychologist, other therapists, and more. If you are seeking reimbursement from insurance for services, you will want to be referred by your primary care physician.
We serve children of all ages from birth to adolescence.
The length of time for speech langauge therapy services is dependent on many factors individual to your child. Attendance rate, specific diagnoses, severity and complexity of deficits, carryover into the home, age, frequency of therapy are just a few of the variables that can have a positive or negative impact on the length of time a child requires in receiving speech-language therapy services. However, your child's progress will be monitored in every session and no child will be kept in speech language therapy services if it is not appropriate.
