Home Visits

Speech Pathologist and Client

Our team understand that life is busy and this is a big reason why we specialise in providing a home visit Speech Pathology service. We want to take the stress out of travel and ensure every session is enjoyable and valuable to our client and their family.

When working with children we can:

  • Provide everything that is needed for the session
  • Show the child how to use toys/games they already have
  • Include activities targeting a specific goal

All of the above helps to build your child’s language and teach them new skills which aid with their development. 

Before we leave, we provide activities and ideas on how you can best support your child and consolidate their new-found skills until we see you for their next appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring/ have ready for my first session?

You will not need to bring anything to your first session, as we come to you! As a fully mobile service, our practitioners come fully equipped with everything we may need for an initial session so you will not need to prepare anything. If completing a swallow assessment, we may ask if you have biscuits or soft fruit, however, we will also come equipped with alternatives so there is no need to prepare anything.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

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

What does a swallow assessment entail?

Your speech pathologist will commence your swallow assessment with a case history interview to gather important information. This will include questions such as those regarding medical history and details about the problems you are experiencing with your swallow.

From there, your speech pathologist will conduct an oro-motor assessment which examines the cranial nerves which are responsible for swallowing. Impairment of these cranial nerves may impact your muscles and how safely you are able to swallow.

Your speech pathologist may also assess your ability to drink fluids and eat different textures of food. A list of recommendations to best suit your individual presentation and circumstances will be provided following your assessment.
