From the correct production of speech sounds to language based training, Rise therapists creates custom treatment plans for each child involving family members, caregivers and teachers. We offer one on one sessions, classes, and groups to help your child make consistent progress and develop the confidence and skills for happy, successful and communicative lives. We can’t wait to meet your family and get started down the road to communication success!
Evaluations at Rise look at the whole child through a comprehensive and customized assessment. Our team takes the time to learn about your child’s communication needs through a family interview followed by an individualized evaluation. Rise therapists use informal, play based, and/or formal assessment protocols allowing for a full picture of your child’s communication. Each evaluation is accompanied by a consultation meeting to discuss your child’s strengths and areas for growth. Areas of evaluation for children age birth to high school include:
- Expressive/Receptive language
- Language Processing
- Listening skills for children with hearing aids/cochlear implants
- Executive functioning
Although your child is working, they are having a whole lot of fun! At Rise, each therapy session is customized to motivate your child and meet his/her needs. Customized tips, school, and home plans are given at the end of each session to assist in faster acquisition of skills and generalization beyond our office door. Our therapist provides customized treatment services to address:
- Expressive Language Skills
- Receptive Language Skills
- Articulation/Speech Development
- Auditory habilitation/rehabilitation
- Phonological Development

Quarterly progress meetings are provided to families to track the child’s progress and discuss any new issues or concerns based on time at home or school.
