Evaluations

Our evaluation protocols are based on parent concerns and developmental history and include a combination of parent input, client interaction, observation, and standardized assessments to develop a thorough understanding of the child's strengths and challenges. Evaluation results, along with family and client preferences, are used to guide our occupational therapy plan and recommended goals. 

 

If a child has had an evaluation from another company within the last 3 months of contacting Wood SLP Services, Inc. we will use those evaluation results to guide our therapy plan and goals.

Outpatient, Clinic-Based Services

Come visit us at our family-friendly clinic located in Shelby, NC. For some families, receiving therapy in a dedicated therapy space, outside of the home, works best. We have created a welcoming and clean clinic where families can freely join us in our therapy rooms or wait in our lobby during their child's session. 

Wood SLP Services, Inc. has a Sensory Gym at our clinic that allows for dedicated focus and treatment of all fine motor delays, but is especially beneficial to children with sensory integration issues related to Austin and/or ADD/ADHD.

If you child is eligible for speech therapy or occupational therapy we are an approved provider for families in Rutherford, Cleveland, Polk, Lincoln, Gaston, Burke, and Catawba counties.

Home, Daycare, and Community Setting

Not only is it convenient to have our occupational therapists come to you, we also believe in evidence showing the effectiveness of therapy when provided in a child’s natural environment. We work on fine motor, visual motor, and sensory integration skills where the child is comfortable, allowing them the security to learn and practice new skills in the settings where they will use the skills the most
