All initial appointments are scheduled for 45 minutes, generally comprising of a 30 minute assessment session followed by a 15 minute discussion with parents/ guardians. Please bring any relevant assessment or medical reports to this session.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend this assessment and subsequent therapy sessions. At the end of this session, I will provide you with general feedback on your child's performance, and if required, recommend a therapy schedule for you to consider.
I provide assessment and support in the following areas:
Speech (articulation/ fluency)
Spelling-focussing on phonological awareness skills (ability to hear, identify and manipulate sounds in words).
The therapy schedule will be tailored to suit your child and their communication difficulties. Weekly, fortnightly or less frequent review appointments may be offered.
I will endeavour to make therapy sessions fun for your child, so please let me know if there are particular themes or games that interest them.
At the end of therapy sessions, I will set programming goals with you and/or outline strategies that will support your child. These recommendations can be shared with your child's preschool/ school. If staff at your child's school/preschool would like to contact me, they can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 0418 808 301.
