Initial Assessment

The initial assessment can vary between 1-3 hours depending on the complexity and type of difficulty evident. This will include a case history which outlines the child’s global development, and current concerns. Informal/formal assessment, observation, and discussion with school staff and parents/carers will be carried out depending on the age and type of difficulties presented in the child.


It is important to note that standardised assessment can be used on bilingual children, but age norms will not be quoted. The findings will be qualitative. The age norms of the majority assessments have been standardised on a monolingual English speaking population, and therefore maybe invalid.


Assessments will include profiles in the following areas:

  • Attention and Listening Skills

  • Social, Emotional & Behaviour Skills

  • Play

  • Speech sound production and intelligibility, oral examination, phonological awareness

  • Understanding of language and use of Language

  • Verbal reasoning skills

  • Voice production, and intonation

  • Quantitative/qualitative data of levels of stammering


Therapy sessions can range between 30 minutes-1 hour, this will also depend on your child’s level of attention and listening. The packages of care offered are individually tailored to support your child’s needs. It is important to note that simple and practical homework activities will be given for you to carry out at home – this will make a difference, this forms a vital part of working collaboratively with the Speech and Language Therapist, in order to best meet your child’s needs.
