Evaluations and Therapy

In addition to the areas listed below, we have speech-language pathologists whose areas of specialty include the evaluation and treatment of auditory language processing deficits that may negatively impact reading, writing, spelling, and academic language. Our objective is to comprehensively diagnose and treat these difficulties from a speech and language perspective, by considering multi-dimensional aspects such as memory, comprehension, vocabulary, discrimination, phonological processing, sequencing, and organization. For more information about these and any of the services listed below, please contact Jennifer Malone Priest at 847-821-1237 x4 or jen@cslclinic.com

  • Articulation / Phonology
  • Language
  • Auditory Language Processing
  • Oral Motor Function
  • Pragmatic (Social) Language
  • Reading (Decoding and Comprehension)
  • Written Expression / Spelling

Parent Groups

We are pleased to offer a parent group periodically throughout the year.  Information regarding these meetings will be posted on our News/Events page as well as at the clinic.

Screenings

We are available to provide screening services to children at private schools, day care centers, and pediatrician offices. In addition to speech-language screenings, we are also able to complete hearing and vision screenings for children ages 3 and up. Ask your pediatrician, or the director of your school or child care center to schedule a screening, by contacting Jennifer Malone Priest at 847-821-1237 x4 or jen@cslclinic.com.

A screening is an abbreviated evaluation that determines whether or not a child is performing at an age-appropriate level or if the child could benefit from further evaluation. The screening assesses the following areas:

  • Articulation
  • Expressive Language
  • Receptive Language
  • Voice
  • Fluency

If there is an area of concern, a comprehensive speech-language evaluation will be recommended. Schedule permitting, we are available to provide an evaluation, as well as follow-up therapy on your site, if the parents wish to follow through on these recommendations. However, there is no obligation to proceed with services through Central Speech & Language Clinic.
