Here’s how it commonly works.

1. Intake

In the first phone call you will speak with a Senior Speech Pathologist who will discuss in depth your concerns in order to determine the appropriate plan for your child.

2. Assessment

A thorough initial assessment allows us to collect all the required information. We will spend some time talking with you to get a holistic picture of your child. The actual assessment will vary depending on the child and their needs. Sometimes it may need to be quite play based and other times there will be various structured tasks that allow us to gain an in-depth understanding of their skills. We will discuss the assessment your child requires at the initial intake phone call.

3. Reporting

All initial and review assessments come with a comprehensive and individualised report which include findings, explanations, interpretations, insights, valuable recommendations and an outline of intervention plans. These reports are then provided to all members of the team (e.g. Paediatrician, OT, teacher) to establish a strong starting point to the intervention process.

4. Planning Intervention – setting goals

Goal selection is essential to progress. Carefully selected goals and targets, based on evidence-based practice can mean lots of time and money saved. We want your child to make the most gains in the shortest amount of time! Your intervention will be under the watchful eye of the team, supervisors and we set out to take a holistic approach in order to optimise progress.

5. Regular sessions

For most therapy to be effective and gains be seen, frequent and intensive practice is required. This is why we need you to commit to regular sessions in which we guide you with what needs to be done at home. In an ideal world, children should be attending one to one sessions several times a week. As this is not viable for most, parent training is essential and some of your regular appointment could be focused on discussing what needs to be done at home and HOW.

We also place a huge emphasis on liaising with school staff and other professionals involved in the care of your child. All of our therapists also work directly from schools and preschools within the area and therefore have an understanding of the need for there to be a team effort in supporting any child with communication/learning difficulties.

6. Maintenance
