Private Speech & Language Therapy
Individual therapy sessions can be delivered following a recent comprehensive assessment either by our service or following a recent (within the last 6-12 months, depending on the individuals age and needs), assessment by another qualified Speech and Language therapist.
- Private therapy works holistically with the individual in their primary environment to develop functional communication and interaction skills. This enables the individual to develop skills and confidence in communicating with a range of communication partners.
- We offer bespoke functional therapy sessions, as we believe that developing skills in the individual’s natural environment is the most effective way to develop communication and interaction skills. Sessions are usually based around the practice of a skill in a 1:1 setting and supporting that skills to be used functionally in an every day life setting. An example of a therapeutic goal that may be worked on could be ‘Being able to order a drink in a cafe using a symbol communication board’ ‘Being able to talk about likes and dislikes using a high tech communication device with a communication application’.
- Therapy aims, targets, plans and approaches will be discussed with the individual and their support network following assessment and agreed prior to therapeutic assessment.
- The provision of therapy, requires carryover work to be completed on a daily basis as part of an individual’s communication environment.
