Birth to 3 – Pre-K Screening

Birth to 3

Are you worried about your toddler’s speech or language?
Contact BHASED Speech-Language Pathologists. We serve children under the age of 3 years with a delay in expressive and/or receptive language.

What do services look like?

Parents and caregivers are a child’s first and most important teachers. Our primary goal is to help families improve their child’s communication skills. Initial play-based evaluation and services are provided in the child’s home or daycare setting by a licensed speech-language pathologist once or twice monthly.

What happens at age 3?

If continued speech-language services are needed, a referral may be made to the local school district. A preschool screening through BHASED may be recommended.
