The amount of speech pathology sessions needed varies from across individuals and depends on the presenting condition and client goals. A number of factors need to be considered when determining the amount of sessions needed, including:
- Reason for referral for speech pathology services
- Presence of comorbid conditions – e.g. does the client present with Autism Spectrum Disorder and stuttering at the same time?
- Severity of the communication difficulties
- Family/parental involvement – support and implementation of strategies outside of therapy sessions
