The amount of time needed to complete an assessment for other speech and language issues, interpret the results and findings, and compile a report is dependent mainly on the complexity of the assessment and also on the participation and attention span of the child. For these reasons, a range of times and prices are given for assessments. An estimated fee will be discussed prior to the assessment session. There is a minimum of two hours ($280) allocated and charged.
The following services incur an additional charge based on the hourly rate of $140 and will only be carried out upon your request. There is no charge for meetings between the therapist and parent(s) prior to assessment or to discuss the results of an assessment.
- Phone based sessions as alternative to direct face to face therapy sessions
- Case review meetings
- Parent-teacher conferences
- Liaison with medical practitioners
- Home program development and preparation

Telehealth Therapy Services
From 23 March 2020, all assessment and therapy sessions will be delivered via telehealth using Zoom in combination with telephone and email.
Face to face sessions will resume when the current COVID 19 pandemic has subsided.
Research has shown that this remote way of delivering therapy is very effective for the Lidcombe Program.
Not sure how this could work? Fiona will chat through how telehealth sessions can work prior to scheduling the first appointment.
The fee structure for this service is the same per hour rate as face to face therapy sessions.
