  • What happens during an evaluation or screening?

    Our evaluations range from brief screenings to more formal assessments to determine if a patient is developing speech, language, and motor skills appropriately. Results act as a baseline to measure patient progress and assess whether a patient needs treatment.

  • How long will an evaluation take?

    Depending on the client’s age and the type of tests given, the evaluation will take 30 minutes to 2 hours on average.

  • Will I get a written report of the evaluation?

    You will receive a written report describing the outcome of the evaluation. The speech pathologist, occupational therapist, or physical therapist will prepare this report after the evaluation/testing is completed.

  • How long can my child receive services?

    Availability of services is determined by your insurance carrier. When the services are approved, the insurance company (including TennCare) can allow services to continue until your child is re-evaluated and shows language/communications skills that are appropriate for your child's age level.

    Yes, we serve children from birth to age 3 children in our office, homes, pre-schools, and daycares in Knox County and many others in East Tennessee.
