We advise that parents/carers seek an up to date hearing assessment for their child prior to attending the initial assessment appointment.

You should allow 60-90 minutes for an initial consultation however for a comprehensive assessment more than one appointment may be required. You first consult will involve talking to you about your child and their past and current development followed by a set of assessment activities that may be formal or informal depending on the child’s skills and abilities. A recommendation will be discussed with you regarding the frequency and timing of ongoing therapy sessions should they be required. A written report will be provided detailing the assessment results and recommendations.
A standard individual therapy session runs for 45 minutes. Parents are invited into the sessions so they can watch the strategies and activities that are being used to help support their child’s speech and language development. Play based activities, games and stories are used in the sessions to engage the children and make the work fun. Homework activity ideas will be provided at the end of each session so that goals can continue to be supported through the week at home.
