Assessment & Treatment

Fussy Eating


At Perth Speech Therapy a thorough assessment starts with us listening to your story and situation, as you know your child best.

Gathering personal and background information is integral for the planning of your child’s assessment and treatment. Following the discussion, a personalised, in-depth assessment will be suggested to target your child’s specific situation.

Clinical assessment may be informal or formal depending on what your child presents with and how old your child is.

Following the initial discussion and assessments, a treatment plan will be offered should your child require ongoing therapy. There is an option to receive a verbal report or a formal written report. If you select to receive a formal written report a complimentary report will be sent to the referring source.

Please enquire about these options at your appointment.


Once the assessment has been completed and results determined, a personalised intervention plan will be devised. Goals will be established in consultation with the family.

The family are encouraged to be at the sessions, as this allows effective follow-up therapy to be completed at home between sessions.

If the service is delivered at school and a parent cannot be present, an e-mail or phone call will be made at the end of the day. Follow up contact will provide the family with information on what occurred in the session and any home practice to be completed.

It is imperative that for progress to be made your child is consistent in attending the sessions. Speech therapy intervention is based on each session building upon the previous session for it to have a positive and long-term effect.

The sessions are usually 1:1 as each child learns differently and at a different speed. The time can vary between half an hour up to an hour. This will depend on the intervention required and how old your child is.

Sessions can occur at our clinic in Alfred Cove or at schools, daycares and homes.

Please contact the office for further information on how Perth Speech Therapy can assist you.
