Community Collaborations

At I.P.L.C. we believe that creating collaborations to address speech, language, and communication needs is crucial. An effective collaboration creates consistency, as well as, an environment to share knowledge and skills. We offer various services designed to meet community needs.

SCREENINGS

We offer free screenings at schools to help identify a need as early as possible. Regular screenings are a beneficial way to assess the progress of a child’s development. All children can benefit from having their communication skills screened by a speech-language pathologist, just as they benefit from routine screenings in other areas.
