Learning more about you
The professionals at Aspire Speech & Learning Center provide assessments in the core areas of speech and language and in related areas such as learning, swallowing, feeding, cognitive functioning, and processing.
Our goal is to understand each person in their life context and determine the role and impact of speech, language, or learning on the ability to function optimally. Coming to an appropriate diagnosis is the first step in understanding what is the best treatment plan for each individual.
One way to think about assessment is to divide communication skills into Content, Form, Use, Learning, and Foundations of Oral Speech.
