Service

Stacey will provide specialist assessment and a tailor made therapy package to suit your child's needs.

Assessment will depend on your child's needs and may include the following:

  • Informal assessment: Most commonly used with younger children or children with limited language. It involves engaging or observing your child in a natural play or feeding situation and assessing their skills.
  • Formal assessment: Used with older children or children who have more established verbal language and involves 'testing' using a standardised assessment. This is still lots of fun for your child. Depending on your child's level of concentration this may need to take place over more than one session.
  • School based assessment: This will involve informal assessment of your child in their school environment and will be recommended in order to provide a school based therapy programme.

Therapy packages include one or a combination of the following:

  • Individual therapy session: This includes feedback and advice.
  • Review/consultation session: Most commonly used for feeding sessions or review of home/school programmes.
  • Home programme: This is written individualised advice for parents and carers. This may include resources. Ideas from the programme will be demonstrated during an individual session with Stacey and then given for home practice.
  • School programme: This is written individualised advice for school staff. This may include resources. Ideas from the programme will be discussed/demonstrated by Stacey and then given for support in school. School programmes will be designed to support access to the curriculum.

 Fees are available on request.
