An assessment to suit you
Our speech and language therapists offer Skype assessments for individuals with speech, language, communication and voice difficulties.
A Skype assessment is an assessment which is carried out by one of our speech and language therapists online over a Skype session.
A Skype assessment will involve a speech and language therapist assessing an individual’s abilities and needs. A time to suit you will be arranged to contact you over Skype in which you will discuss your areas of concern and a detailed case history can be taken. The speech and language therapist will then assess what they can online. If more information is needed, you may be invited for a home visit to assess some things in person which we were unable to over Skype.
We will work closely with you in the Skype assessment in order to clarify your areas of need and personal goals.
Why would an individual need a Skype assessment?
An individual may require a Skype assessment when it is convenient for them. Some individuals may find it hard to find a time suitable for them for our therapists to visit them. Others may live in hard to access areas and would prefer to have an initial Skype assessment before a therapist came to visit them. It is a cheap alternative as no travel needs to be funded.
A Skype assessment may not be appropriate for everyone and those who decide it would be suitable for them, must be competent Skype users and have good access to internet. However, it is an easy and cheap alternative to a physical assessment.
