1. Assesment

    Individual Services:

    We start with a free consultation to determine whether a formal assessment is necessary and whether Defining Voice is the best avenue for your needs.


    Institutional Services:

    We provide free screening for preschools and day cares in the Bay Area. This screening is to identify children who might be in need of Speech-Language services.

  2. Treatment

    Services we offer at Defining Voice:

    • Early Intervention
    • Sound System Disorders
    • Fluency (Stuttering)
    • Auditory Processing
    • Childhood Apraxia of Speech
    • Receptive and Expressive Language
    • Adult Accent Modification
    • Reading Therapy
    • Pragmatic Language Therapy

    Treatment plans are based on credible research, therapist experience, and client values that have been proven to show positive outcomes in clinical studies.

  3. Guidance

    To ensure positive outcomes we design individualized treatment plans that supplement therapy sessions with in-home practice. We work closely with the family to extend therapy outside of the therapy sessions with practical assignments for busy families.
