Communication - Individual Programs

NW Speech offers individualised programs for children who are early communicators.

Sessions may take place in the family home, in a community setting (e.g. kinder or childcare) or via Skype.

What will individual consultations involve?

Since no two children (or families) are the same, each program varies. But all NW Speech programs build on the following principles:
  • Children learn through play and social modelling
  • Children learn from the people they are closest to
  • Children learn well from routines
  • Children learn best when they are relaxed and having fun

With these principles in mind, I work with caregivers to understand how your child is currently communicating, and build on their strengths and interests. We will develop goals, discuss and practice strategies, and plan how these strategies may be incorporated into your day-to-day routines.  

I take a family-centred approach, which means that I see you as the expert of your family.  You will decide the direction therapy will take, how often it occurs and where it takes place.  Each child and each family is unique, so each family's speech therapy program will also be unique and driven by them. 

Are you looking for a particular program?
