How long are therapy sessions?
If therapy is recommended, your speech pathologist will arrange a suitable time. Most children attending therapy at the Clinic attend once a week during school terms. Therapy sessions are usually for one hour, but young children may attend for thirty or forty-five minute sessions. Others attend several times a week, or attend therapy blocks during school holidays.
What's involved in a therapy session?
Therapy is tailored to the needs of each child. The Speech Pathologist, in conjunction with the parent and sometimes the child, will determine the goals and priority for therapy. Our Speech Pathologists can assist children with a range of difficulties, including: articulation, language, literacy, fluency, social skills, Autism Spectrum Disorder, auditory processing and dyslexia. The Centre’s Speech Pathologists are trained in a range of programs that can effectively assist your child.
How do I get reports on my child's progress?
Your speech pathologist will monitor your child's progress and re-assess your child at regular intervals. She will give you feedback at the time of therapy sessons, and can provide written progress reports if necessary.
