Assessment may involve one or all of the following:

  • Discussion with parents/carers (about medical and developmental factors) and allowing the child to settle into this new environment
  • Focused activities with the child:
    • Structured/formal assessment for older children
    • For younger children, activities will be play-based. Information provided by parents plays an important part of the assessment
  • Discussion about the outcome of the assessment

 

Assessment might take place over one or more sessions as children respond in a variety of ways when interacting with unfamiliar adults and/or being in an unfamiliar setting.

We can carry out joint assessment sessions with 2 speech pathologists or organise multi-disciplinary assessments with an occupational therapist. We can arrange assessments in within an office environment in Sumner or Pullenvale. Or we can provide school, or home visits within the Brisbane, Ipswich and Springfield areas.
