HOW TO BEGIN SPEECH THERAPY
Before registering for any developmental therapy session with MAGIS, a report from a developmental pediatrician is required. You may choose to schedule one at Makati Medical Center through MAGIS.
Both types of therapy begin with a multi-session Initial Evaluation, which concludes with an evaluation meeting with the child’s parents and the therapist. A number of sessions will be recommended, in which goals are set to be achieved.
For assessment purposes and further observation, home or school visits may be recommended to gain a more comprehensive understanding of a child’s day-to-day environment. This will inform the development of an optimal speech program for the client.
The speech therapy service will be carried out in your homes by our professional therapists.
