Speech-Language Therapy Services
The Columbia Gorge Education Service District's speech and language team partners with parents, educators and community agencies to address a variety of communication needs including fluency, articulation, voice and language. Parent education is also available.
The CGESD provides screenings and evaluations free of charge for children birth to five years old (before entrance into Kindergarten)
who have special needs or disabilities. Evaluations include an observation of the child in a comfortable setting, in-depth interviews with family members and a standardized assessment of a child's development areas of concern. A written report, including planning suggestions, is prepared and shared with families.
A child must have a speech and/or language delay that meets the state eligibility criteria for Special Education Services.
To qualify for speech and language services, a child must reside within the North or South Wasco Counties. Please contact us to start your referral.
