SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY ASSESSMENT, INTERVENTION AND PROVISION FOR CHILDREN

Initial consultation

A free initial telephone consultation (approximately 20-30 minutes)

 

Assessment

  • An initial assessment usually consists of one session of approximately 1–1.30 hours

  • A report can be requested.

  • An hourly rate will be charged for reports.

 

At the initial appointment a recommended course of action will be discussed.

 

Intervention

DIRECT INTERVENTION:

Face to face Speech and Language Therapy (SLT)

  • One to one SLT

  • Group SLT

 

Sessions are around 45-60 minutes long which includes time for feedback and discussion within the allocated session time.

INDIRECT INTERVENTION:

Packages of care

  • Termly programmes - these are tailored programmes for teachers, teaching assistants and parents to follow in order to support therapy targets. They include ideas, strategies and activities to help integrate and generalise targets into the every day setting, and improve therapy outcomes.  

 

A programme is normally charged at one and half hours. It can be updated as necessary and may be focused on the following areas, or any area which would benefit from targeted input and intervention e.g.

 - expressive language (spoken language)

 - understanding of spoken language and words (receptive language)

 - semantics (vocabulary and word finding skills)

 - phonology (speech sound system)

 - social communication skills (non verbal communication, understanding inference)

  • Target setting and integration into educational plans (Individual Education Plan or IEP)

  • Annual review reports- usually two/three hours- to be discussed beforehand

  • Attendance at annual review (usually two hours)

  • Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) reports- to be discussed

  • Tribunal reports for Special Educational Need (SEN) (I have extensive experience of assessment and writing for the purposes of tribunal reports)
