During therapy, we will target those areas of speech and language that have been identified as areas of concern for your child. Pursuit Speech Pathology is a family-centred practice. This means that we will work closely with you throughout the therapy process to ensure that all services are tailored specifically to suit your child and your family. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide therapy services that are fun, flexible, and evidence-based to ensure that we help your child achieve their learning goals in a motivating and engaging manner.
During therapy, your child will be allocated weekly or fortnightly therapy sessions. At Pursuit Speech Pathology, we offer 30-minute, 45-minute and 1 hour treatment sessions. The exact frequency and length of your child’s therapy sessions will depend on a number of factors, including the specific nature of his/her speech and language difficulties and appointment availability.
It is difficult to estimate the exact duration of your child’s speech pathology intervention. Every child presents with different speech and language difficulties and responds to therapy in different ways, which makes it challenging to estimate the length of their speech pathology treatment. We monitor your child’s progress on an ongoing basis during his/her time at Pursuit Speech Pathology, and we will provide feedback to you at the end of every session so that you remain informed regarding your child’s progress and changing needs. We also always encourage you to contact us via phone or email between appointments if you have any questions or concerns.
As part of therapy services at Pursuit, we provide your child with home practice and/or strategies to use at home, daycare and/or school. This will help your child practise his/her new speech and language skills in his/her everyday interactions, which will encourage generalisation and progress outside of the clinic environment. We feel that this is an incredibly important part of our therapy services, as we want to equip every child with the skills they need to thrive in every area of their lives.
