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.
