Our speech-language pathologist Jody Vaynshtok was featured on the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Leader Blog this morning. As a guest blogger Jody highlighted her experience co-founding Sound Speech and Hearing Clinic and seamlessly bringing together the fields of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.
This article focuses specifically on the benefits of collaborative speech, language and hearing evaluations. Jody writes, "In 90 minutes, the family gets a clear picture of their child’s communication strengths and weaknesses, and a plan for next steps. This prevents the family from making two separate appointments at different locations and dates to obtain similar results. The added time and cost might also burden families. Some families also must perform a hearing test prior to speech-language evaluation, and wait times can be long. Our families are grateful for an opportunity to learn about their child’s communication skills at one time and place."
