For diagnosis, monitoring progress, describing your child’s individual approach to communication, or providing necessary information to case managers and support coordinators through the NDIS.

Speech pathology reports and assessments are essential to ensure that you have a clear idea of how your child is progressing, and an understanding of both their challenges and their unique strengths.

Such reports and assessments also play a key role in enabling you to access funding or other support for your child. 

We know that your child is more than a diagnosis – we make sure that the assessment is informative and not limiting. The better that we all understand your child, the better that we can support them on their journey.

General assessments and reports

Every child who attends speech therapy should receive a full assessment and written report about their needs and treatment plan.

Our reports are in-depth, thoughtfully written, and detailed enough to provide a useful insight into funding requirements and supports. They can be shared with the NDIS, schools, and other medical professionals.

Autism assessments

Autism assessments

Every child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is unique and has their own particular set of needs and challenges around language and eating. That is why we use a neurodiversity-affirming approach, where we value every brain equally.

If you’re concerned about your child’s development, or if a teacher or health professional has voiced concerns, then it may be time for an autism assessment.

Autism Awareness Australia provides detailed information on getting an autism diagnosis

A speech therapist works as part of a multidisciplinary team to help recognise Autism Spectrum Disorder and assess communication challenges and strengths.

During a comprehensive autism assessment, we conduct various tests, including the CELF test to check language comprehension. The results of these tests are then reviewed by a paediatrician.
