Step 1: Register and meet Kim
Go to CONTACT in the menu bar and fill in your details in the form. You will later receive an e-mail to schedule a free 30min introductory appointment. In this appointment Kim will gather information about your health condition, communication/swallowing concerns and goals for treatment. She will check out if your situation and treatment goals are suitable for online Speech and Language Therapy intervention. If online treatment is not suitable she will suggest onward referral to other Speech and Language Therapy services or other specialists.
Step 2: Technical checks
The main requirement for the online therapy to succeed is to have a suitable computer with sufficient Internet quality to enable a good connection. You will receive instructions about how to set up your electronic device and home environment to ensure that your online Speech and Language Therapy service is safe, efficient and effective.
Step 3: Create your own INDIVIDUAL, tailor-made GOALS
Build your contract for your specific therapeutic intervention goals with Kim. This will include a more detailed medical history and your permission for Kim to contact your Doctor to gather information and to inform them of your plans for assessment and treatment goals.
Step 4: Get started.
Start with your therapy! Kim can then commence by assessing the nature of your communication and swallowing problems that are relevant to your goals for treatment. Assessment is an important step to providing a safe and efficient service but it needs to be firmly set in the context of what you want for your treatment. We will then work together on your goals for your treatment, constantly monitoring and updating as we progress with your treatment.
