Our evaluation protocols are developed based on parent concerns and developmental history. Our speech therapists use a combination of parent input, client conversation, observation, and standardized assessments to develop a thorough understanding of the child's strengths and areas of difficulty. Evaluation results, along with family and client preferences, are used to guide our 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.

Early Intervention Services
Wood SLP Services, Inc. provides early intervention services for children ages 0-3 years, who have been found eligible for the N.C. Infant Toddler Program by the CDSA. If your child is under the age of 3 years old and you have not had a developmental evaluation through the Children Developmental Services Agency (CDSA), please contact them to schedule an evaluation. If your 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.
If your child was not eligible for services through CDSA; however, you are concerned about your child's speech, language, or social development, please contact us to discuss our private practice services.
Using a mix of play-based therapy and caregiver coaching, we provide services for children in homes and daycares. Contact us to begin speech therapy services.
Home, Daycare, and Community Setting
Not only is it convenient to have our speech therapists come to you, but we also believe in the evidence showing the effectiveness of therapy when provided in a child's natural environment. We work on speech and language 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.
