When I am asked to see a child, an initial consultation will be arranged. This
allows me to take a case history from parents/carers and assess the child’s communication
skills using both formal and informal assessment.
Following the assessment, I will then agree a course of action with parents –
this may be a review in a few weeks or months time or a block of regular therapy
sessions. I will usually provide practical strategies or specific activities
for parents and/or school to carry out between sessions to support the work I am
I am happy to see children in their own home, or in their school/preschool setting.
I ask that whoever is carrying out the homework activities attends the session
as well so that they are aware of what we have covered.
Schools can also employ my services to provide training about speech and language
difficulties in the classroom and strategies to help children with speech and
language difficulties in the classroom.
