Individual therapy sessions are generally offered on a weekly or fortnightly basis at our speech pathology clinic in Doncaster East. Goals are formulated with the child’s caregiver and are based on outcomes from observations, parent interviews and assessment. The child’s caregiver and therapist will also work together on planning home practice speech therapy activities.
Our speech pathology clinic in Doncaster East offers a vast variety of assessments to assess oral and pragmatic language abilities, speech, phonological awareness, reading, writing as well as assessment and speech therapy for autism spectrum disorders.
Prior to assessment and therapy, a detailed case history is collected from the child’s parents or carer so that key developmental information is gathered along with information about the child’s skills and learning abilities.
Informal assessment and observation is often also used as a means of gathering important information about your child.
Upon completion of the assessment a children’s speech therapy plan will be devised based on the individual needs of your child. A report will be provided on request.
