Speech Screenings and Evaluations


The Laughlin Children’s Center Gateway to Language program visits preschool classrooms throughout the surrounding communities to screen children and to identify any speech, language, or hearing problems. Parents are advised about findings and recommendations for follow-up care, if needed. Teachers are provided with information about early childhood speech and language development. Laughlin Children’s Center charges a nominal fee per child screened to provide this service at the preschool site. Free screenings are available at the Center by appointment.  Call or email us for more details!


Comprehensive evaluations assess phonology/articulation (sound skills) receptive-expressive language, voice, fluency, and oral-motor skills. Pure-tone hearing screenings are also offered. A parent consultation follows the completed evaluation. To find out more about an evaluation, or to schedule an appointment, call 412.741.4087.
