Engaging blurb about what to expect.
Speech Moves provides play-based speech, language and literacy programs tailored to help your child communicate effectively.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We individualise the assessment process according to the areas where your child has difficulty, their age and ability to process tasks, and the purpose of testing.
Assessments typically take between 60-90 minutes. As part of the assessment the speech pathologist may:
- Record a detailed history from parents/carers
- Gather other reports/documentation (hearing test results, other health reports)
- Evaluate the child’s area of concern through assessment and observation
We aim to make kids feel comfortable and supported in the assessment environment and parents are encouraged to attend all sessions. Families will receive a detailed report of the child’s assessment results which identifies strengths, weakness and goals for therapy.
Speech therapy can occur in our clinic, your home, pre-school or school environment at a pre-arranged convenient time. We offer 45 minute or 1 hour sessions, and the number, frequency and length of visits vary for each client.
Speech Moves incorporates a strengths-based, multidisciplinary approach to intervention. Goals are created in consultation with families to create functional, achievable goals. Homework programs are provided to maintain and extend your child’s progress outside the clinic.
