UPDATE 27/3/20 - COVID19 and the Transition to Online Consultations
I hope you, your friends and your families are well. These are uncertain times and my proposed plan for Speech Pathology Services will most certainly change with local developments. Many families have requested an individual online teleconference instead of face-to face clinical sessions. I have started trialling individual online teleconferences (using Apple FaceTime/Zoom) and they will be offered from Saturday 4th April. Online teleconferences in the first instance will be offered to clients at the same time as their regular booking. I will continue to consult on Monday afternoons, Tuesdays, Friday mornings and Saturdays.
Face-to-face consultations will continue as long as I am able to provide a safe environment for everyone involved at Kensington Osteopathy. I will provide regular updates via this website.
The needs of my clients are diverse so online teleconference programmes will be adapted to meet individual needs, however, they will have a similar format including administration time and feedback to guardians. The provision of therapy with depend on the child's overall needs and concentration span. I will email a proposed plan prior to the initial meeting so that you understand the fee structure and format of sessions. This will be a collaborative process so that these sessions are effective and positive for your child and your family. Contact Kensington Osteopathy to register your interest for an initial online teleconference.
For those clients who choose to suspend Speech Pathology support, please contact the office and cancel bookings. Many of you normally break for school holidays so you may choose to cancel some sessions or you may choose to stop sessions altogether. Please schedule appointments to suit your individual needs.
If you require review reports, support or other documentation, please email me at email@example.com
Take care of yourselves and those around you.
Regards Alison Marriott, Speech Pathologist
Initial Consultation/Assessment: 45 minutes
All initial appointments are scheduled for 45 minutes, generally comprising of a 30 minute assessment session followed by a 15 minute discussion with parents/ guardians. Please bring any relevant assessment or medical reports to this session.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend this assessment and subsequent therapy sessions. At the end of this session, I will provide you with general feedback on your child's performance, and if required, recommend a therapy schedule for you to consider.
I provide assessment and support in the following areas:
- Speech (articulation/ fluency)
- Oral language
- Spelling-focussing on phonological awareness skills (ability to hear, identify and manipulate sounds in words).
The therapy schedule will be tailored to suit your child and their communication difficulties. Weekly, fortnightly or less frequent review appointments may be offered.
I will endeavour to make therapy sessions fun for your child, so please let me know if there are particular themes or games that interest them.
At the end of therapy sessions, I will set programming goals with you and/or outline strategies that will support your child. These recommendations can be shared with your child's preschool/ school. If staff at your child's school/preschool would like to contact me, they can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 0418 808 301.
