The Speech Therapy process.

Assessment.

A comprehensive assessment is important to identify the underlying speech and language challenges that need to be addressed. We use a range of assessments and functional measures to collect a profile of your child's communication capability. We will collaborate with preschools, schools, educators, healthcare professionals, and other specialists during the assessment process ensuring a wholistic team approach.

Diagnosis.

Following the completion of the assessment, the results will be compiled to identify the individual needs and areas of weakness. We will help you to understand why there is a communication difficulty. Understanding this is important for the child's progress and long term communication success. 

Therapy.

Our therapy programmes are developed specific to  assessment findings and each individual child's needs. We use gold-standard evidence-based practices to get the best results for your child. A therapy programme may include one-on-one appointments, parent training and home programmes. It is important that therapy goals are reinforced at home to support your child's progress.
