I am recognised by AXA PPP health insurance and am happy to look into registering with other health insurance companies on request.
Standard Assessment £140
This generally takes 1½ to 2 hours. It will involve gaining information from you and assessment of your child. All areas of your child's speech, language and communication skills are covered. The cost includes a written report which details your child's current strengths and needs and includes activities and strategies to support their communication skills.
Speech Assessment (Pronunciation) £100
This option is for children whose only difficulty is clarity of speech. Select this option if you are confident that your child's attention skills, understanding of language and use of sentences are age-appropriate as these areas will not be assessed. A written report including activities and strategies to support speech sound production is included in the cost.
Therapy Session £65 (60 minutes)
A one hour session is appropriate for the majority of children. Therapy for children with language delay and stammering often includes structured play sessions and video feedback. This requires an hour to deliver effectively. Therapy for children with speech (pronunciation) difficulties involves the child practising speech sounds through games and activities and setting/reviewing homework activities. There are some children for whom a 60 minute session is too long and for these children shorter sessions can be offered at e.g. £55 for 45 minute sessions.
Therapy Block £360 (6 x 60 minutes)
I offer a small discount when you book and pay in advance for a block of 6 therapy sessions. If you need to cancel a session due to illness, this will be rearranged at no extra cost. Money will be reimbursed if the full set of sessions is not required.
Review Sesssion £90
This is a 60-90 minute session where we review your child’s progress and plan next steps. A short written report is provided.
Nursery Visit £80
This is a 1 hour visit to your child's nursery. It involves observation of your child's communication in the nursery environment. The price also includes advice to nursery staff on how to promote your child's speech and language skills and modelling of therapy techniques. A written programme of targets and exercises will be provided.
