We offer comprehensive speech and language assessments for children from 2-18 years of age.
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 their child’s assessment results which identifies strengths, weakness and goals for therapy.
We design functional, achievable goals for our clients in consultation with families. Therapy sessions are planned to be both fun and challenging.
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.
Our family-centred, evidence-based programs maximise the best possible outcomes for our clients and give parents the skills they need to maximise their child’s progress in everyday situations.
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.
