Speech Pathology Appointments

The first appointment for your child will be a 1 hour assessment session. During this time, the therapist will take the opportunity to begin building rapport with your child, discuss the main concerns you have regarding your child’s communication skills and begin assessing their communication abilities.

The length of time it will take to complete an assessment will depend on your child’s age and individual needs. Follow-on assessment sessions may be required, however this will be discussed with you at the first appointment.

At the completion of assessment, feedback will be provided and you will have an opportunity to discuss the assessment outcomes. Together, an intervention plan will be made for your child, if required. This may need to occur in a follow-up session and, in some cases, might require an appointment without your child present.

A written report can be provided outlining your child’s assessment results, recommendations and action plan. This is particularly relevant if your child has been referred to speech pathology by kindy or school staff.

How much therapy, how often it is needed and where it should be provided varies with each individual. The recommended options will be discussed with you and, from this, you can decide the best step forward for your child and family.
