How can we help and support your child?

 

Assessment

Here at the Family Psychologist our Speech and Language Therapists use the latest formal

assessments in order to understand and support a child's Speech, Language and Communication Needs.

 

An assessment session will typically be less than an hour and 30 minutes. Our speech and language therapist will usually start by talking to you about your child's early history and development and gathering some information about your concerns. The assessment they do will look at how well your child's speech and language skills are developing compared to what we would expect for a child of their age.

 

Once your child has been assessed by the Speech and Language Therapist you will be provided with a detailed report regarding your child's Speech, Language and Communication Needs. In addition to this,the report will contain advice on how you can best support your child and whether therapy intervention is necessary.
