Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Our Services

Is your child difficult to understand by you or unfamiliar listeners? Does you child demonstrate difficulty with comprehension or following directives? Does your child demonstrate difficulty with expressing themselves? Does you child present with dysfluency (stutter)? If the answer is yes to any of the above, call us and schedule your evaluation to determine if speech therapy is for them.

Screenings: We provide preschool and school age speech-language screenings (birth-21y.o.).

  • 1:1 speech therapy services where we work one-on-one with our clients in a private setting to target and work on specific speech-language goals and skills.
  • Therapy + ADL (activities of daily living) where we provide speech-language therapy services within the individuals community to support and provide strategies for completing tasks needed for daily living so the individual has the skills to integrate with the highest levels of independence. This can include going grocery shopping or doing laundry.

Childcare Facilities: Here at Rising Sun we we want to assist your child care facility in identifying children who demonstrate speech-language difficulties. As educators and care takers we understand the importance of early identification and thus are excited to work with you to identify those students who demonstrate significant enough speech-language concerns to warrant further assessment & therapy.

Screenings are a quick way to monitor a child’s speech-language development. They are conducted to evaluate and assess any minor speech-language concerns. Results from screenings help identify and distinguish children who are at risk for developmental delays or disorders from those who are not. Screenings are NOT used as a diagnosis but rather to help indicate if a child is in need of further assessment.

Speech & language evaluations are conducted to measure the child’s communication skills. We evaluate our clients using dynamic assessment measures which is done through a combination of formal and informal testing measures. During evaluations speech language pathologists use formal assessments, informal assessments,  behavioral observations, parental report, and background information about the child to determine if a speech and/or language problem is present.

At Rising Sun we provide articulation-phonology, receptive language, expressive language, fluency, and pragmatic language evaluations. 

Why is this all so important you might ask? Early detection has been found to be the key to success for children who demonstrate difficulty with speech, language, and social communication difficulties. Early detection leads to early treatment and provides them with the best chance to provide effective intervention to strengthen your child’s skills. This is why we pride ourselves on not only providing therapy but also offering screening and evaluation services.

We accept clients of all ages.

We offer off-site & in-home therapy.

Commonly Asked Questions About Speech Therapy

Speech-Language Therapy Simplified

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. They work with people in various settings such as schools, private practices, healthcare facilities, and even their own homes to improve their speech, language, social, and cognitive skills, as well as feeding and swallowing difficulties (dysphagia).

Speech disorders occur when individuals demonstrate difficulty with production of speech sounds, producing speech sounds fluently (i.e., stuttering or rate of speech), or demonstrate difficulty with voicing or resonance. Speech sound disorders can occur in children and adults both as organic speech disorders and functional speech disorders.

In children they most commonly occur as developmental speech disorders. In adults, speech disorders are typically a result of unresolved childhood/developmental speech sound disorders, stroke, and traumatic brain injury. Some medical diagnoses in both children and adults can also lead to speech sound disorders (i.e., apraxia of speech and dysarthria).

Language disorders are defined as an impairment in comprehension and/or use of spoken, written, and/or other communication symbol systems (i.e., PECS, ASL). Language disorders involve the form of language (phonology, morphology, syntax), the content of language (semantics), and/or the function of language in communication (pragmatics), in any combination.

Language disorders are categorized into two areas: receptive language and expressive language. Individuals can present with a receptive language disorder, expressive language disorder, or both (often referred to as mixed receptive-expressive language disorder).”

Receptive language disorders occur when an individual demonstrates difficulty with understanding information presented to them auditorily or visually (i.e., spoken, text, ASL). 

An expressive language disorder is when an individual demonstrates difficulty sharing their thoughts, ideas, or feelings. 

Communication differences (i.e., language differences, accents, and dialect) should always be taken in consideration when evaluating an individual’s speech-language abilities.

Communication differences refer to the “variation of a linguistic symbol system used by a group of individuals that reflects and is determined by shared regional, social, or cultural/ethnic factors” (ASHA, 1993). These variations should never be considered a disorder of speech or language.

Speech refers to how we produce sounds and words. Speech includes articulation, fluency, and voice.

Articulation: How we make speech sounds using the mouth, lips, and tongue.

Fluency: This is the rhythm of our speech. We sometimes repeat sounds or pause while talking. People who do this a lot may stutter.

Voice: How we use our vocal folds and breath to make sounds. Our voice can be loud or soft or high- or low-pitched. We can hurt our voice by talking too much, yelling, or coughing a lot.

Language refers to the words we use and how we use them to share ideas and get what we want. It is a rule-governed behavior and is defined as the comprehension and/or use of a spoken (i.e., listening and speaking), written (i.e., reading and writing), and/or other communication symbol system (e.g., American Sign Language, PECS). Language and its 5 domains (morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatic) are divided into 3 core components of language: form, content, and use.

Form refers to the rules of language and how you say it.

  • Morphology (grammar): Studies the units that make up words. It refers to the rules that govern changes in meaning on the word level.
  • Phonology (sound awareness): How phonemes are used. It refers to the rules that govern the structure, distribution, and sequencing of speech sound patterns. 
  • Syntax (sentences): How words are put together into a sentence to make sense. It refers rules that govern word order to form clauses, phrases, and sentences.
