We offer Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy for both pre-school and school-aged children.
Children will require an assessment prior to beginning therapy in order to determine the type of therapy required and to set appropriate goals to work towards.
Speech sound assessment (takes approx. 40 minutes) including brief report $150
This assessment is appropriate if you have concerns about the sounds your child is making in words and sentences. You might find your child difficult to understand or notice that your child mixes up some sounds. This assessment is not appropriate if you are concerned about your child’s vocabulary, sentence structure or ability to understand and follow instructions.
Comprehensive language assessment (takes approx. 2 hours) including brief report $300
This assessment is appropriate if you have concerns about your child’s expressive and receptive oral language, literacy, social communication, stuttering, working memory, or if a more in depth speech sound assessment is required. It is possible that Sounds Good Speech Therapy may recommend a more comprehensive assessment as a result of concern raised during a speech sound assessment and then the cost of assessment will be altered accordingly.
30 minute session $80
45 minute session $100
Travel to outreach visits (i.e. home, school, or preschool visits) within the Manawatu area can be arranged if required.
