Children are typically seen for one-hour initial assessment. Parental concerns and expectations are discussed. Formal standardised assessments are used whenever possible, and results are compared with informal assessment- such as a child’s typical language sample during play. Results and recommendations are discussed with the parents or caregivers.
Children are generally assessed in the areas of:
- Receptive language
- Expressive language
- Speech development
- Other specific areas of concern (such as fluency or literacy skills) can be separately assessed.
Individualised intervention plans are designed which focus on realistic, functional, and achievable goals that aim to improve a child’s ability to communicate.
Home/ Kindy/ School Visits:
In these busy days, some parents are not able to take their children to a therapy clinic. Upon request, the child can be seen in his own home, or at a kindy/school setting.
Upon request, detailed written reports are available.
