If you’re new to speech therapy and not sure what help you need, we offer two types of assessment with one of our speech and language professionals.
For someone who’s having difficulties understanding instructions or expressing themselves
For someone who needs help with speech sounds, clarity, or pronunciation
Your speech and language professional will review your case history and address any concerns or questions you may have
Next, we'll practise some exercises with your child to assess their needs, based on your history and concerns
We'll observe your child playing and interacting with others and will ask them to show some of their favourite toys
To finish the assessment we'll summarise your child's communication level and recommend your next steps
A clinical report contains the results and recommendations from your assessment, which can be shared with your child's school or GP
Many UK insurances will reimburse families if they have a clinical report and invoice - please check with your insurance provider and get in touch.
Your computer or tablet, and a few toys next to you. It would be ideal to tune in to the online assessment session in a quiet room, away from others and distractions.
We aim to get the assessment report back to you within 1 week.
