Speech for Everyone can conduct speech, language, literacy and social skills screening assessments.. These can be conducted within early learning centres, preschools, kindergartens, play groups or schools.
The benefits of screening are that it provides a snapshot of your child's abilities and allows for early detection of any difficulties. Early detection allows therapy to begin early which has proven to have better outcomes.
Screenings include assessing the child's articulation, expressive and receptive language skills, social skills and for school aged children their literature skills.
