Assessment & Diagnosis
To ensure that you have a clear understanding of your child’s skills the following comprehensive assessments may be required.
The assessment will include the following:
With your permission we will seek to add any additional information from other sources such as teachers, medical professionals, psychologists, occupational therapists, audiologists and the like to ensure that all relevant and appropriate material is added to the eventual diagnosis and outcome.
Following the comprehensive assessment, an intervention program is devised. The interventions provided are typically research and evidence based. It is recognised that each child and family require a program that suits needs and abilities. The intervention program is devised by using best practice strategies:
We believe that it is only when the speech-language pathologist and the family work collaboratively together that the best outcomes can be achieved.
Intervention typically includes parent/s and child participating in the therapy session followed by practice sessions at home on a regular basis. Sessions are typically 30 – 40 minutes in length although the timing is adjusted as appropriate. Resources and information required for home activities will be provided. Regular practice of skills is essential to ensure progress and success.
Attendance at sessions is important to provide ongoing advice and assistance and typically will be performed on a fortnightly, 3 weekly or monthly basis. As individual circumstances are different, the timing of sessions will organised to suit individual need.
