Individual Therapy Sessions

Would you like individualised one-on-one support to develop your child's speech, language or literacy skills? Talking Matters speech pathologists provide individual therapy sessions working with children to develop skills in their areas of need, through fun activities. Perhaps your child is experiencing difficulties with their gross motor, fine motor, sensory processing or activities of daily living and would benefit from working with an occupational therapist?   

Talking Matters provides individual therapy sessions in a range of areas including speech pathology, occupational therapy or psychology. Children who work with Talking Matters consultants in individual sessions all work to achieve goals which have been specifically developed for them.  No two programs would look the same or be delivered in exactly the same way.  We know your child is special and will get the most out of sessions when the program is developed with their strengths and needs in mind.

Individual sessions can be arranged at various intervals based on your child's needs and what you as their parent or caregiver would prefer. Your speech pathologist, occupational therapist or psychologist will make recommendations about the best possible way to help your child in order to help you decide how often you would like your child to attend. 

Speech pathology, occupational therapy and psychology sessions may be claimable under your "Extras" cover if you have health insurance. Rebates generally cover a little over half of the cost but you should discuss this with your health insurance provider.

Contact us to book an initial assessment and begin this valuable support for your child.  

Information regarding fees can be found on the Talking Matters Therapy Fees page.

School based therapy services

Talking Matters speech pathologists, occupational therapists and disability consultant also provide school based services in many locations in the northern suburbs of Adelaide.  Sessions at school are often more convenient for working parents and also enable professionals to work more closely with your child's educators.

We are often able to offer therapy services at school when we have a group of children to work with, at least 3 children per visit.  School services do not cost any extra when provided in a school we work with regularly.  Sometimes we may be asked to provide a one-off service at a school and we will do our best to accommodate these.  

When sessions are provided at school a summary of the visit is left with the front office staff to provide to parents so you still have some information about what is happening in sessions.  It is often useful to have a therapy session in the office in school holidays to keep more closely in touch with your child’s therapist.

An assessment is needed if an informative recent assessment is not available.  Assessment information helps us to identify your child’s goals and what we will need to do to support your child. More information about assessments is available in the assessment section of our website.

To manage accounts for sessions provided at schools parents will be supported to sign up for the Ezidebit system.  The Ezidebit system enables payment of sessions received at school through a simple, efficient and secure direct debit from your nominated account.  Payments are processed the day after sessions are provided so that debits can be cancelled should we not be able to provide the service due to clinician illness.

We have more information about this service available in the school based services (pdf). Please call our office if you would like further information about a service at your school or if you wish to make an appointment.
