Speech Therapy

Speech therapy in Albuquerque, NM.

Why is Early Intervention Important?

Are you concerned that your child’s speech or language skills are delayed?

Research has shown that early intervention can make a big difference in a child’s developmental trajectory. Identifying and treating speech and language delays early means your child has less to catch up on than if they do not start receiving services until they begin school.

The speech-language pathologists at Albuquerque Speech Language Hearing Center are trained to identify and treat young children who have speech and language delays. Early speech therapy can improve outcomes once they begin school. Communication is an integral part of our human nature, and these skills will be used for a lifetime.

Acting now and receiving high-quality speech therapy services at our center can help a child communicate, play, and interact with their world both now and in the future.

What to Expect at a Speech Therapy Appointment

When you visit Albuquerque Speech Language Hearing Center for you or your child’s speech needs, you can expect your appointment to be broken into three parts.

Pediatric speech and language screening

Screening: Pediatric speech and language screenings are scheduled in a 15-minute block and are used to determine if a full evaluation is warranted. A small, out-of-pocket payment is due at the time of services rendered. Insurance is not typically billed for screenings.

Initial Evaluation: Whether child or adult, a certified clinician will typically use a combination of formal and informal testing, patient interview/observation, and a thorough case history to determine whether or not speech therapy is necessary. Please bring a copy of the patient’s insurance card and completed case history paperwork.

Speech Therapy: Our speech therapy sessions are divided into 45-minute blocks. 30 minutes of this block will be spent in direct therapy. For our pediatric patients, parents may choose to accompany their child into the therapy session or wait in the waiting room.
