Assessment & Findings

Once parental consent has been gained, our speech4schools therapist can assess your priority children without delay.

The parent is usually invited into school and this enables a detailed case history to be taken. The therapist also speaks at length to the class teacher to gain a real insight into their concerns about the child. The therapist will have a wide range of formal and informal assessments to help them to accurately identify the child’s difficulties. The therapist can also observe the child in class or at play to learn more about their specific difficulties and the impact these have.

The assessment results would then be written up in a professional, yet user-friendly way. The findings would be shared with all involved verbally as well as in the form of a written report. The child then begins their therapy or intervention and their progress is reviewed by the therapist at a set time.
