Our speech and language pathologists (SLPs) all hold licensure through the state of Maine Board of Speech, Audiology, and Hearing, which requires receiving a masters degree from an accredited program. Additionally, all hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the nation's leading professional, credentialing, and scientific organization for speech-language pathologists, speech, language, and hearing scientists, audiologists, audiology and speech-language pathology support personnel, and students.
Speech and language services target:
Each child will have an individualized plan of care developed by their speech language pathologist that focuses on their specific strengths, functional goals and interests. Clinicians work with families to develop home programs to promote carryover and generalization.
Services will focus on promoting the generalization of skills and routine based strategies.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Yes, additional private therapy can be beneficial to children under 3 years of age, as this is a critical stage for language development. Most insurance companies will cover both Early Intervention and private speech therapy services simultaneously.
Although there are standardized developmental milestones, every child will acquire skills at a different pace. Look at our Communication Norms Page. If you are concerned about your child's language development, schedule a free phone or Zoom consultation with MidCoast SLP.
The clinician will interact and ‘play’ with your child, and although it may look like simple games, we are actively observing and making assessments to treat specific language and/or speech targets identified in their individualized plan of care.
Please contact us directly with any questions, comments, or scheduling inquiries you may have.
