This is how TinyEYE's speech therapy scan works.
For long-term success, tailor-made speech therapy is essential. The TinyEYE speech therapy scan provides the tools for an effective treatment plan. The scan is for ages 4 to 5 years. TinyEYE’s speech therapists carry out the scan online and are therefore able to identify speech therapy related problems at an early stage and provide tailor-made speech therapy. The scan takes approximately 12 minutes per student and is carried out during school time.
The TinyLanguageTool as a tool to perform the scan.
The TinyLanguageTool has been developed to detect problems within a child’s speech or language development early on. The TinyLanguageTool is applied online by a certified TinyEYE specialist who scans whether the child has reached the required minimal milestones in his or her language development. The scan takes place via the TinyEYE software, to identify where the bottlenecks in speech and language development lie, and makes the process of early signalling more efficient. At the end of the speech therapy scan, the results are made visible in the TinyLanguageTool in the form of a score and pre-diagnosis. The pre-diagnosis also indicates which child has the most urgent need for care in terms of speech and language.
This is what the speech therapist pays attention to.
In order to offer tailor-made speech therapy, the speech therapist pays attention to a number of aspects during the scan that can be divided into various categories. The speech therapist pays attention to:
✓ Language (eg. sentence building, understanding language, vocabulary, working memory);
✓ Speech (eg. pronunciation of sounds, speech intelligibility, speech fluency);
✓ Voice (eg. hoarseness, loudness, loss of voice);
✓ Oral habits (eg. thumb sucking, open mouth breathing, lip tension, mobility).
After the speech therapy scan, the speech therapist discusses the scan results with the teacher. The school will also receive a comprehensive report with the results per student and advice from the speech therapist.
When tailor-made speech therapy is recommended, children can be treated online by TinyEYE Europe. For families who have Dutch health insurances, the costs of the therapy are fully covered. Parents who do not have a Dutch health insurance for their child are asked to pay for the therapy themselves. Afterwards, they can always request reimbursement from their health insurance company themselves.
