Therapy Process

Based on your concerns, an initial assessment will be booked for your child with the most suitable therapist in our team. After the initial assessment you may receive verbal and email feedback or pay for a comprehensive report with the findings of the assessment.

Child History Questionnaire

Before the assessment you will be asked to fill out a form to provide information regarding your child’s developmental history and your concerns about your child. During the assessment, the therapist may discuss this information and gain further insight into the presenting concerns.

Initial Assessment

During your child’s initial assessment, the speech and language therapist (SLT) may use informal and/or formal assessments to identify your child’s strengths and needs. The initial assessment will typically take one hour. If needed, with your consent, the therapist can go to your child’s school or your home to obtain more information. If your child has been seen by other health professionals (e.g. psychologists, occupational therapists), it will be beneficial to bring the reports so that the speech and language therapist can get a better understanding of your child’s development and associated concerns.

During the assessment we will assess several areas of development, including attention, listening skills, articulation, understanding and use of language. Other observations may include oral-motor functions and sensory development, particularly related to feeding and speech.

Analysis of Assessment Results

When the assessment is complete, the SLT will analyze all the information obtained during the formal and informal assessment to identify specific areas of need. You may receive verbal or email feedback after the assessment.

You may request a formal assessment report from the therapist. If required, this is chargeable and will be provided within 14 working days of the payment date.

Speech Therapy Sessions

Based on the assessment results, the speech therapist may recommend speech therapy sessions. The therapist will target SMART (Specific, Measureable, Agreed upon, Realistic, Time-Based) goals based on the analysis of the assessment results. These goals will target specific areas of need and these will be worked on both in the sessions and at home where possible. Therapy sessions can be 30 or 60 minutes long and include feedback to parents or caregivers about the session and guidance on how to work with their child at home to facilitate progress.
