Geraldine provides an in-depth initial assessment, either formally or informally, to profile the client’s strengths and weaknesses. This generally takes between 1½-2 hours and may be carried out over a period of one or two sessions. The parent remains in the room with the child during the assessment. The child plays with toys, looks at pictures and the process does not feel like a test to them. Teenagers and young adults are able to reflect on their communication needs and the assessment is a collaborative process.
Speech and language therapy sessions are client-centred with clear targets and goals delivered in a relaxed and practical way.
Email us for details of assessment and therapy costs as it depends on the age of the child and their communication needs.
