Therapy is usually at the centre. We provide :
- 1:1 individual intervention / Speech Therapy
- Group work (2-4 maximum in a group)
Whether intervention is individual or in groups, is determined by the needs and readiness of the child. The speech therapist may recommend individual sessions first, and when ready a dyad (two students) followed by slightly larger groups. Our groups are never more than 4 students and are tightly fit for ability and tailored to the needs of the individual.
Frequency of intervention depends on the needs of the individual and family. Sessions are typically once weekly for an hour. We cannot enable development in just one hour once a week. Parents and caregivers are integral to this process. We work intimately with caregivers and relevant others to understand the individual and hence facilitate development.
We also offer home-based and school-based support to accelerate progress and facilitate carryover. Please refer to our specialist service "DIR Social Coach" for more information.
