I'm a Referrer
How Talking Matters help Referrers
To cater appropriately for the individual needs of children, services typically start with an assessment. Further information about the process and the costs is available on our Assessment Fees page.
We have a range of school holiday programs available to support areas you may identify as needs for your students. Groups not only target functional skills, but are fun and a cost effective way to receive additional support. Further information about programs is available on our Group Programs page.
We understand that educators want the best for students and take referring for additional services very seriously. If school aged children are not achieving in their learning or social interactions to the same level as their peers then they are likely to need some additional assistance. We have also provided basic checklists to assist in identifying younger children who may need early intervention. If in doubt it should be checked out.
There are a range of services available to support students with their individual needs. Further information about therapy options is available on our Therapy page.
Talking Matters offer services offsite where there are sufficient student numbers. Special arrangements for an onsite session is also a possibility by negotiation where needed. Further information about services at your site is available on our Therapy page.
Families often need the support of their child’s educators in identifying that additional support is required for their children. It is often the advice and information provided by educators that encourages families to take the required steps to seek assistance. Families can self-refer and no doctor’s referral is needed. Families can use the contact page, or call our office on (08) 8255 7137 for more information or an appointment. If you have parent consent to contact us on their behalf we welcome you to assist them by completing the contact us form.
