What does an assessment involve?
First, we meet with families to find out what the concerns are and how these difficulties are impacting on everyday life.
We will then agree the next steps which may include more in-depth assessment of speech, language and communication skills, advice and support – or signposting to relevant support and information. During an assessment, the therapist will interact with the child, play with them and ask them questions. The therapist may show the child a selection of toys or pictures and ask questions about these. This will help the therapist to determine if he or she has speech, language or communication problems.
