Childcare and Kindy Services
As children are spending an increasing amount of time in childcare/kindy settings, educators and staff may be the first to suspect a child is not meeting their communication milestones. At our clinic we are keen to support educators where possible, to better support the children they are caring for each week.
This may include:
Staff training eg. red flags, when to refer, practical strategies
Information talks for parents at your centre
Liaison via phone/email regarding a specific child who may be accessing speech pathology support (with parental consent)
Monthly newsletters about communication development with practical strategies to help
Speech pathology screening with children
If you would like further information or have specific questions, do get in touch!
