Therapy Booking Process

 


How do I make a booking?

A GP referral is not required to organize for a private speech pathology assessment. You can self-refer by calling or emailing us with your concerns.

Initial Telephone Discussion or Email Enquiry

A supplementary (no obligation) 10 to 15 minute initial discussion is offered to ensure that this is the best service your child’s particular needs. An appointment can be scheduled if necessary. If you decide to go ahead with an appointment booking, you will be sent a confirmation email.

Assessment

The assessment process involves gathering information and utilizing a variety of assessment tools to determine the needs of the child. It may be appropriate to carry out a formal assessment with standardized tests for some children. As assessment session generally lasts for 60 – 90 minutes (which includes time for discussion). A detailed assessment report will be emailed you 2 to 3 weeks after the assessment.

Therapy

Depending on the outcome of the assessment, your child may be offered a bock of therapy in order to work developing specific skills. Sessions are designed to the child’s individual needs. Some activities for home practice are recommended to help the child’s learning. Family members are encourage to be involved in the therapy process as much as possible.

Fees

Fees differ depending on the nature of the assessment and duration of therapy session. Please feel free to contact the clinic to ask the current fee schedule.

Cancellation Policy

Please give us notice if you need to cancel an appointment. A significant amount of time is spending planning for scheduled appointments and other clients may be on a waiting list, so if you give us right notice your cancellation can be offered to someone else.   
If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, it would be great if you inform us 24 hours before your appointment. If you miss a session without cancelling, or cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will be required to pay for the session in full.
