Just Talking uses the most up-to-date methods to identify your child’s needs in order to develop a targeted intervention programme.
Your child’s assessment is typically booked for one hour, however, this is dependant on the initial needs of your child.
Assessment sessions are relaxed and fun and targeted to your child’s current abilities. Don’t worry if you have concerns regarding your child’s ability to focus or interact with new people as all of this is managed well within the clinic setting.
Moira is happy to discuss the specifics of what assessment would involve for your child, prior to an appointment, just get in touch.
A treatment plan is then formed with you and your child (and their pre/school if necessary) to begin the process of improving their speech, language, literacy and/or social skills.
When a more holistic assessment is required, team assessments can be completed, involving developmental paediatrician, occupational therapist, and physiotherapist, as required.
A team assessment is often recommended for more complex issues and allows professionals to work together with a family to assess and plan intervention in a number of areas.
