Speech & Language Assessment
Assessment can involve formal standardised tests or informal assessment; through observation, play and conversation. Assessment involves gathering information from parents, teachers and other professionals to obtain a snapshot of your child’s current communication skills and how it may affect his/her day to day life.
Depending on your child and their needs, the assessment may vary in length and might be conducted over one or more sessions to allow for a detailed investigation of your child’s communication skills. Following assessment, your Speech Pathologist will discuss your child’s strengths and needs with recommendations for a plan of action. We understand you know your child best, therefore you also play a part in deciding a plan for the course of therapy.
If requested, a comprehensive report detailing your child’s strengths and needs with recommendations can be provided and shared to educators and other professionals.
Our strength-focused and evidence-based approach to therapy is tailored to align with your child’s interest and fosters an environment where your child’s communication can blossom. Therapy sessions will be 45-60 minutes on a weekly or fortnightly basis, which is recommended for maximum progress. At the end of each therapy session, your Speech Pathologist will offer functional strategies and home based activities for your child to take away and practice at home.
We are committed to working collaboratively with parents, teachers and other professionals to promote the best outcome for your child. This involves up-skilling and empowering parents, caregivers and school support staff to successfully and confidently facilitate intervention strategies and supports within the home, school and community settings.
Therapy programs may also be delivered by a Speech Pathology Assistant and overseen by your Speech Pathologist, as a cost-effective way to complement and increase the frequency of speech therapy appointments.
