School Services

We have experience providing speech pathology services to preschools, long day cares, primary and high schools.

We can adapt a school based program to meet the needs of your setting, students and teachers.

Students can be seen individually, in pairs or in small groups.

When working in the school setting we ensure that practical strategies are shared with the student’s teachers and family.

This supports the student to have the most varied and consistent practice to achieve their goals.

We offer a range of school services that can be delivered during the visits to your preschool/school, including:

  • Screening assessments in the areas of; speech, language and phonological awareness,
  • Formal assessments
  • Provision of summary and detailed reports
  • Therapy – individual, pair and small groups
  • Reviews/program updates
  • Provision of programming strategies and practical activities that can be easily implemented in the classroom
  • Contribution to meetings including IEP and transition to school meetings
  • Team teaching opportunities, mentoring and coaching of teachers to upskill in the areas of speech and language

Team Training

We also offer team training and mentoring services as part of our school services.

One of our team will work closely with the educator or teacher to explore ways speech and language strategies can be implemented in the classroom setting to meet the needs of all the children in the room.

This training model uses both modelling in the classroom setting, one-on-one reflection and training sessions with the educator or teacher.
