Words To Grow is a speech pathology private practice for children and young people based in the inner-city suburb of Ashgrove. Our commitment to quality assessment and therapy means that each therapy session is individually designed for your child based on research evidence. We believe that children learn best when they are engaged and having fun while working towards their communication goals.
Speech, Language and Literacy
A Comprehensive Assessment is a vital part of gaining a detailed picture of your child’s communication skills. It provides evidence of your child’s strengths in speech and language and areas that need to be developed in speech therapy. A comprehensive report is an essential tool for communicating these strengths and weaknesses to parents, professionals and educators. The report will also provide strategies and recommendations for supporting your child’s speech, language and/or literacy development.
Therapy is tailored specifically for your child based upon the results of the initial assessment. Children learn best when they are motivated, engaged and having fun. Therapy sessions for young children will most often be play-based because children learn language through play. Therapy goals for school-aged children are likely to be targeted in the context of games, so that children learn their new skill whilst having fun. Your Speech Pathologist will explain to you the goals of each activity and why we are having so much fun doing it! Follow up practice at home is an essential component of therapy success and all parents are expected to set aside time with their child each day for home practice tasks.
I'd love to speak with you further about your child's speech, language and literacy development. If you have any questions about your child's communication, the assessment process or therapy sessions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
