Filling Out Form

Assessment

A thorough assessment is an essential step in helping clinicians gain an understanding of each client’s strengths and difficulties.  This involves a personalised, in-depth process of gathering necessary information from the client and their family/support network to enable selection of appropriate and effective goals for therapy.  Assessments can involve many methods of data collection, including formal (standardised) testing, observational assessment and parent/teacher/support network interviews or questionnaires.

Treatment

Once the assessment process is completed, an individualised therapy plan will be developed.  The client and their family/support network will be included at all stages of treatment and we encourage the continued involvement and support in therapy sessions and any home therapy programs initiated.  Our sessions are mostly individual; however, if appropriate, your clinician may offer you a small group session.  Therapy sessions are generally conducted at our clinics; however, home, kindergarten, school and aged care centre visits can be arranged.  Please discuss this with your clinician to determine which best suits your needs

Telehealth

Telehealth is face-to-face speech therapy that is done online via video conferencing. This service is appropriate for clients living outside our service areas, or those who would prefer not to attend our clinic in person.  Research has indicated that Telehealth can deliver the same outcomes and progress as face-to-face therapies.  Call us to discuss if Telehealth would be appropriate for you.
