Before committing to an assessment, you are welcome to contact me by phone or by email for a brief discussion of your concerns, and whether Speech and Language Therapy could help. There is no fee for general emails and telephone calls.
Time : 1 – 1 ½ hour per session
Cost : £140
This includes taking a detailed case history about your child and his/her development, assessment of speech, language and communication skills and a written summary report. Travel included up to 15 minutes from therapists base.
Some cases may require more than one assessment session, depending on your areas of concern, and your child’s attention span. Should this be the case, additional assessment sessions will be charged at the hourly rate.

Additional or longer written reports
Time : per hour Cost : £65
This applies if more than a summary report is desired following an assessment (additional time will be added to the assessment fee). It is often beneficial to produce a report at the end of therapy and/or following a review appointment, not only to keep for records, but also as a progress update for other medical or educational staff involved with your child (with parental consent). This fee will also be applied if you ask for a progress/information email.
Time : per hour
Cost : £65
It is sometimes appropriate to provide a programme of activities to be carried out at home over a number of weeks or months. For example this may be the case when therapy is not immediately appropriate or at the end of a block of therapy before a review. Please note the price for this can vary as it can take considerable time to collate and make resources.
