Questions to Consider When Considering Speech Therapy

The following is not a comprehensive list of aspects to consider when considering a speech language evaluation. It serves as a starting point for parents and caregivers to begin to inspect the functionality of a child's use of language. Language impacts all aspects of our daily lives. It is important to consider not only a child's spoken language but also how their language skills affect interpersonal relationships, reading comprehension, and written expression. 
  • Has your child met all developmental milestones within functional limits?
  • Is your child communicating adequately when compared to age related peers?
  • Is your child utilizing functional communication?
  • Is your child able to explain their ideas to you? 
  • Do you feel as though you are constantly repeating directions and/or your child does not appear to understand everything you are saying? 
  • Does your child interact appropriately with peers? With adults? 
  • Is your child able to follow simple directions?
  • Can your child make appropriate social inferences (e.g., reading body language, inferring how a person may feel)?
  • Does your child have adequate phonemic and phonological awareness skills?
  • Is your child reading at grade level? 
  • Is your child at grade level with regards to reading fluency and reading comprehension?
  • Is your child at grade level with regards to written expression?
  • For older children, do they appear to understand humor and indirect language?
