Often it’s not just the child who requires help and support. Alison likes to involve those surrounding the child by providing speech pathology information sessions and training for parents, carers, and professionals around communication and feeding difficulties. She can also provide assistance in trialling specialised communication equipment.
Mealtimes can be an especially stressful time for children with feeding difficulties and sensitivities and their families. Alison can provide advice and support for feeding and mealtimes and has undertaken training in the SOS (sequential-oral-sensory) approach to feeding difficulties.
A wide variety of different session plans are available, depending on the child or adolescent’s needs. Speech pathology sessions can be arranged at home, school, or at childcare as necessary. Skype sessions are also available.
