We feel it is essential to gain a holistic picture of your child so we can identify underlying causes of communication and learning difficulties.
To do this we:
- Seek information from you about your child’s development, health and family history and how you see your child
- Gain your permission to talk to other professionals, carers and teachers involved with your child
- Conduct scientifically researched assessments (psychometric assessments) and clinical observations of your child.
Getting to know your child in this way can take between one to three sessions with the Speech Pathologist depending on the complexity of the information that needs to be gathered. The first session usually occurs in the clinic and subsequent sessions may be in the clinic, at home, at childcare or at school.
