SERVICES & FEES

INITIAL ASSESSMENT

When you book an assessment appointment, I will then ask you to complete a questionnaire about your child's development that can be returned to me prior to your appointment. Assessment sessions may include a visit to you and your child at your home and/or a visit to your child in pre-school or school. We can then discuss your child's communication skills and the support they may need.

I can provide a brief summary report or a more detailed report depending on your preference.

Assessment of your child's needs in your home for up to one and half hours including:

  • Pre-assessment Questionnaire (details about your child's development, medical history and interests)

  • Observation and assessment of your child's communication skills through play, where appropriate.

  • Some formal assessment may be used.

  • Guidance for supporting your child's speech and language at home

  • Written summary of discussions and recommendations 

  • Liaison with your child's preschool or school as required.
