This service is available for individuals who aren't certain if they are ready to commit to an assessment by Prismatic Speech Services. During this time, our clinician will address whatever questions you may have, as well as give a general overview of the assessment and treatment processes. For transgender clients who are interested, this may incorporate advice into how to effectively explore one's gender identity.
An assessment involves an examination of the potential client's relevant history as well as their current abilities. This is an extensive process, as we want to feel confident that we have taken all factors into consideration when developing a plan for treatment. Once the assessment is concluded, our clinician will take the data and develop a plan for our client's time with Prismatic Speech Services, then contact the client and schedule a follow-up meeting to discuss results. The client and clinician will meet, discuss whether treatment is indicated at this time, discuss the developed plan, make any adjustments necessary, then have both parties sign that they agree to follow the plan.
