Feeding and Speech Evaluation

Depending on your child's condition, we may refer you to one of our Speech-Language Pathologists from the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children to evaluate feeding and speech performance. Our Speech-Language Pathologists are usually available at the Center during clinic hours, so it is probable that you will be able to consult with one of them on your first visit. If a Speech-Language Pathologist is not available that day, an evaluation will be scheduled for another time.

The evaluation may include a modified barium swallow or other swallowing studies, a feeding team evaluation, or various speech and language studies.
