KateSLT speech and language assessment and therapy sessions are conducted in your own home. Children are often more comfortable and communicative in their own home and the availability of familiar toys can be helpful. In order to thoroughly assess your child’s needs, I will spend time talking to you about your concerns and taking a history of your child’s development and progress. Your child will then be assessed through play, or more directly if appropriate to your child’s age, to find out where their strengths and difficulties lie. Assessment areas may include attention and listening skills, speech clarity, understanding instructions, vocabulary, sentence structure and non-verbal communication skills (such as eye-contact and turn-taking). If we conclude that therapy will be beneficial, a regular appointment, normally weekly, will be arranged. Home practice will be given to maximise and accelerate the progress of therapy.
