Normally you will complete a pre-assessment questionnaire which is used to find out more about the nature of your/your child's difficulty and this is used as a guide to the assessment. Informal and formal assessment may be used (depending on the nature of the problem, age of the child etc). Areas looked at include speech clarity, speech sound awareness skills, language comprehension (understanding), expressive language (use of language), social interaction skills and fluency. Time will be spent discussing the findings and giving advice/recommendations after the session. A detailed report will be available if desired. Further input will be discussed (if required). There is no obligation for therapy following the assessment.
