Services

The following quality services are provided by the experienced staff at Language and Speech:

 

Assessment

Language and Speech recognises that the children and families we work with have a range of diverse requirements. Our assessment options reflect this.

Language and Speech offers the following options:

  • Comprehensive assessment (report included outlining results and recommendations)
  • Informal assessment (summary report included with recommendations)

 

Screening

If you’re not sure your child needs speech therapy Language and Speech can complete a range of screeners. From this we will prepare a summary that gives you an indication of your child’s skills and make further recommendations.

 

Social Skills

Language and Speech offer Social Skill Groups annually each year in the January school holidays. These groups consist of no more than four participants and are run by speech pathologists and a therapy assistant.

 

Duration of each group will be for approximately six hours spread over two or three continuous days. Your child will be grouped with other children of similar abilities as determined by your speech pathologist.

 

We aim to make the groups fun and engaging whilst working towards age appropriate social skills.
