When it comes to speech therapy report writing, most SLPs let out a huge groan because writing a legally defensible speech therapy assessment report can take hours! And, with large caseloads finding the time and the brain energy to analyze your assessment results can be very draining. That’s why I invited Michelle Boisvert, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, RSP-ADHD, the co-founder of Easy Report Pro, to discuss ways to streamline your speech reports so that you can check that off your list with less stress and more time to do the other caseload management tasks.

Why Are Speech Therapy Reports So Important?

Why Are Speech Therapy Reports So Important?

Michelle breaks down the importance of why speech therapy reports are so important for determining eligibility and areas of need in the school setting. The assessment report summarizes if a child meets Ed Code eligibility and the areas of need for services and accommodations on the IEP.

Types of Speech Report Template Writers

We discussed having templates for speech therapy reports is so helpful with saving time! Oftentimes, SLPs create a library of templates for assessment batteries and different portions of the report, which can take TONS of time to do. Or, we pull up a previous report and use that as a template, which leaves room for errors with having the wrong name, dates, or pronouns in the report.

Must-Dos For Good Speech Assessment Report Writing

During the episode, Michelle shares the MUST-DOS SLPs needed to be included in every report that they write for assessments. We discussed having checklists to help you with including all necessary information as well as making sure to include a thorough background and history section. Michelle also pointed out that the standard assessment results need to match the summary and conclusion of the report. It also is helpful for SLPs to explain the assessment results and how they impact the child’s educational access.
