How to Start
We’ll discuss with you any concerns and questions – and we’ll help you determine if we are the best service to meet your needs.
2. Consult / Assessment
We'll meet with you and your child to further explore your concerns. We will play some games together and get to know your child. We’ll then conduct formal and/or informal assessment activities.
We will provide you with a report outlining all assessment findings and our recommendations.
If therapy is recommended, this will then be discussed with you, along with various options for funding.
Following a period of intervention we will review your child's progress. This will enable us to update and revise therapy goals.
