COMMUNICATION FOR ALL
Providing Speech Pathology services to children in the Illawarra with a disability
WHO ARE WE?
The Speech Spot Illawarra has been providing high quality family centred speech pathology services in the Illawarra since 2021. We are a team of dedicatied therapists and customer relations team who strive to support all children who have communication difficulties.
Our core purpose is to develop our client's communication through their strengths, collaborating with important people to them and embracing their neurodiversity.
We want our families to feel empowered and in control of their child's goals. Our team constantly are learning and use the best evidence available to develop our services.
We are not afraid to make a fool of ourselves or try something new to ensure our clients are able to achieve their goals AND we definitely focus on having our clients and families enjoy therapy along the way!
While we have many steps to ensure we have a successful partnership with you and your child, here is a summary of our process below.
Goals and progress are reviewed every term to ensure that therapy is on track.
At the end of sessions, we will give you activity suggestions or strategies to continue on with. It is this extra practice that is vital to your child reaching their goals.
Throughout the sessions, you are encouraged to ask questions and be as involved as possible. The more you practice providing therapy, the more comfortable you will be at completing the activities at home between therapy sessions.
MAKE A PLAN
Once the assessment process is finished, we will organise a Service Agreement and Schedule of Supports which will help plan how often we do sessions with your child. We will also create a goal planning document so everyone knows what we are working on!
Our initial appointments consist of a phone case history appointment with just the caregiver. This way we can speak openly about your child's needs without listening ears. Our second appointment is when we meet your child and get started!
When you give us a call, we will be able to discuss your concerns, goals and what services will suit you and your child. We will send you our intake form and add you to our waiting list.
