We provide group in-services on the topic of AAC to empower teachers, service providers, caregivers, and support staff in implementing AAC systems in and out of the classroom.

In-services can be tailored to the specific types of devices and tools used by students in your school.
In-service trainings are scheduled for a length of 2 hours and can be planned for a group of up to 30 participants. In-services can be customized to the participants and student populations served with advanced notice. Please contact us for pricing information.

We provide bilingual (English/Spanish) speech-language evaluations using linguistically and culturally sensitive assessment tools
We provide comprehensive bilingual (Spanish/English) speech and language evaluations using culturally and linguistically sensitive assessment tools. Our process accurately differentiates between a “language difference” and “language disorder", ensuring that bilingual/multilingual students receive the appropriate services and supports.
How will a professional bilingual evaluation inform the IEP and therapy process?
Bilingual evaluations must be performed by an expert in order to avoid over- or under-identification of language disorders in bilingual/multilingual students. You will be provided with an evaluation report and recommendations for supporting student success.
