What to expect

Jane offers a complimentary telephone consultation for you to discuss any concerns you have and to decide whether a speech and language assessment is required. An assessment usually consists of a thorough discussion, informal assessment (usually through play) and often a formal standardized assessment. A typical assessment session will take between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 minutes. A report will be written identifying the child’s speech and language skills and specific therapy goals identified.

 

What next

Therapy sessions may be offered depending on the result of the assessment. Specific goals will be targeted in therapy sessions. Therapy sessions are aimed to be fun, age appropriate and tailored to the child’s interests. A home programme is usually recommended with additional ideas and activities to work on at home. This is an important part of therapy. Therapy sessions are typically 45-60 minutes in length dependent on the age and attention skills of the child and are usually offered weekly or fortnightly depending on the nature of the difficulty.
