Solent Speech Therapy

Although your child may have been assessed before, we do our own assessment to determine the exact nature of your child’s difficulties, make recommendations and plan therapy. Prior to the assessment appointment, we do a case history over the phone – so that you don’t have to talk in front of your child, they don’t get bored in the session while we talk, and to help us plan the assessment.

The assessment session varies depending on the child’s age and difficulties. A typical assessment will include a number of assessment activities, along with observation. For some younger children the assessment may be largely play based and include the use of checklists completed by the therapist and / or parent.

Following the assessment, we discuss the findings with you and answer any questions you may have. We make recommendations including the type and frequency of therapy.

We undertake to get the assessment report to you within two weeks of the assessment appointment.
