A speech pathologist from Wizetherapy visits Mater Christi on Wednesdays and Thursdays and referrals for speech pathology services at the school are accepted across all year groups.
Speech and language screening assessments of kindergarten children are offered in Term Two. An assessment screens your child’s:
- Speech sound development and speech clarity
- Word and sentence use
- Understanding of questions and instructions commonly used in the kindy classroom
- Fluency of speech (stuttering)
A short written report will be provided following the assessment. Private health rebates may apply if you have private health insurance, which covers speech pathology services – please check with your provider if you are unsure.
