Faltz Associates, Inc. has maintained its credential as a Non-Public Agency, allowing public school districts to contract for services.
Staff at Faltz Associates, Inc. also provide workshops and parent training sessions in a
variety of subjects.
Articulation Screenings: A brief articulation and phonological screening may be all that is needed if the client presents with only a few errors to address. This routinely takes 30-45 minutes, at which time parents can be counseled about whether therapy is recommended.
Complete Diagnostic Evaluations: Comprehensive testing is available for all ages. The amount of time needed depends largely on the age of the client and the concerns regarding their communication disorder. Multiple appointments are scheduled for the testing, with very young children coming in for thirty minute sessions and older children and young adults attending sessions of at least sixty minutes and perhaps longer. An accumulation of three to four hours of testing is needed for any age client in order to ensure that baseline data and information is complete. Once testing is finished, parents are scheduled for a one-hour conference to review the testing. Recommendations for services or other testing are made at that time. Older children and young adults often attend a separate conference to learn of their test results. A complete formal report is written and sent to parents within a few weeks of the conference appointment following the evaluation.
Ongoing therapy is scheduled in 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions. Most young children will attend twice weekly sessions. Older children, adolescents, teens and young adults often attend one or two, 45-60 minute sessions weekly. The needs of the client, the impact on social and academic performance and the family’s specific situation will all impact the schedule options. Home programs are provided for parents and clients, in order to maximize progress and carryover of learned skills.
Faltz Associates, Inc. staff provides consultation services to teachers, psychologists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, educational therapists, tutors and child care providers on an hourly rate basis.
