Head Start Services

CHSC provides services in the community at several Head Start sites in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga Counties. Thirty-five percent of the Head Start children we screen require more comprehensive evaluation.  Of these, 28 percent require intervention. Our services are provided on a one-to-one basis, in small groups or in the classroom at the Head Start site.  
Additionally, CHSC contracts with several other agencies to provide services at independent schools, day care centers and nursing homes. Community-based speech-language pathology services include the following:

  • Speech-language screenings
  • Hearing screenings
  • Comprehensive speech-language evaluations
  • Language classroom  (preventative language enrichment groups)
  • Speech-language intervention  (individual therapy and/or group therapy)
  • Consultations with teachers and parents
  • Collaborations with teachers
  • Staff in-service training (including a number of speech-language and literacy topics)
