At Compass, our clients conduct screenings, evaluations and treatment for a variety of areas:


  • Speech/phonology

  • Receptive language

  • Expressive language

After an evaluation is conducted, the client will receive individualized therapy using evidence-based approaches. Therapy sessions are fun and effective with family involvement encouraged. At Compass, we believe that our clients do best when everyone collaborates to work as a team to help the child.  Therapy is provided for a variety diagnoses, including, but not limited to: stuttering, expressive language disorder including social communication, receptive language disorder, apraxia, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and speech disorders. Therapy will address improving speech, fluency, functional communication (including alternative and augmentative communication), language use and understanding.
