How Do You Evaluate Your Speech Therapist?

How Do You Evaluate Your Speech Therapist?

What criteria do you use to evaluate your speech therapist? What are the red flags for bad/mediocre therapists? What are the indicators that the therapist is good?

How do you evaluate a speech therapy provider? Does it matter?

I think you can just tell. Do they have a gift with children? Are you impressed when they talk to you? If you think you have a bad one, you probaby do.

I'm not worried about minimally qualified, credentials work for that, I'm looking for ways to assess if they are really good based on their process.

First, I agree with Catina above. Next, check their credentials. They need a M.S. - CCC-SLP after their name. This means they have a masters degree in communication disorders with a consecration in speech language pathology. It also means they passed state and national licensure. After you know they have the proper education, check that they work with children or adults. If you can find their biographical sketch online, great. Go to the ASHA website. It is the national organization for speech language pathologists and audiologists. There is a section to find a provider.
