Screening Services

Dalby Speech Pathology visits local Kindergartens, Daycare Centers and Early Learning Centers to conduct free speech screening.  Families may also choose to have their child’s expressive language screened at a cost of $20 .  A written summary is provided for both speech and language screens.

If you would like your child’s speech screened please talk to the director of the center or contact us directly so that a visit to your child’s center can be arranged.

 

Social Skills Groups

Participants are matched for factors such as interests, age and skills sets.  If you have a child who experiences social skills difficulties please contact us to register an expression of interest for the next appropriate group.  You will be asked to complete a pragmatic profile and, if not a current client, bring your child to one 1:1 session so that the group activities can be tailored to each child’s specific needs. Note, minimum groups numbers are required.

 

Off-Site Services

All regular and ongoing services are provided at Dalby Speech Pathology.  However, travel to other locations may be considered for specific purposes such as team meetings or training.
