Perth Hills Speech Pathology provides a mobile paediatric speech therapy service in the comfort of your own home.
Assessments are comprehensive and designed to determine the underlying cause, of your child’s communication difficulty. Each assessment is tailored to the specific needs of your child.
Prior to your first session, we will send you a form to gather as much information about your child’s current communication skills and their history.
Our first session will take place in your home or an agreed upon location (such as a library). During this session, we will discuss the form and also begin assessing your child.
Depending on your child’s age, communication ability and diagnosis, an assessment may be formal or informal. Assessments usually look more like a fun play session unless a standardised assessment is necessary. It may take more than one session to gather the relevant information about your child before we (Parents and Speech Pathologist) set goals and agree to an action plan for your child.
Language Development Centre Assessments
Specific packages are available for children needing assessments for Language Development Centres.
Individualised Therapy Services
Therapy sessions are conducted in your home, school or childcare centre and are 45 – 60 minutes in duration.
Parents and/or caregivers are expected to be an active participant in therapy sessions as this will assist them in supporting their child at home or at school.
Perth Hills Speech Pathology takes a play-based approach to therapy sessions. Sessions are tailored to your child’s interests and where possible, home practice activities will be set, using your own toys.
