Initial Assessment

Why Assess?

Assessment will identify your child’s strengths and difficulties and determine how their skills compare to other children of the same age. Assessment results will assist your Speech Pathologist to select the most effective goals for therapy.

What's Involved?

In most cases, an initial assessment takes between 1-2 sessions to complete and involves many methods of data collection including; formal testing (standardised assessments), observational assessment, and parent/teacher interviews or questionnaires.

Telehealth Services

Telehealth is face to face speech therapy that’s done online over video conferencing. All you need is an internet connection, computer, laptop or iPad and a ‘Zoom’ account (sign up is free!)

Learn and Grow have invested in specialised audio/video conferencing equipment and many online programs that are specifically developed to target Speech Pathology goals online. With screen sharing and shared mouse control, sessions are fun, engaging and interactive for all ages. Our equipment allows our therapists to see and hear clients clearly in order to collect accurate assessment data, provide specific feedback and achieve effective intervention outcomes.

During all Telehealth appointments, our therapists work closely with parents to provide clear ideas and strategies for everyday use in the home environment. Research shows that parent focused intervention achieves the best results. Telehealth has also been evidenced to deliver the same outcomes and progress as face to face therapies. Call now to discuss how Telehealth can help your child to continue to Learn and Grow!
