Where do you see children for Assessment or Therapy?
We know that sometimes the environment can really impact on how comfortable your child feels, and how well they can attend. Therefore, we can visit your home, kindy, childcare or even school (with permission). You can also come to us at our Ormiston (Optimum Movement Rooms Ormiston Shopping Village) or Carseldine clinic's (41 Graham Road Carseldine)
How much does it cost?
A speech pathology assessment costs between $235 and $329, depending on complexity, location and time taken.
Speech, language, literacy, and feeding therapy starts from $95 per half hour session in clinic, whilst an hour session costs between $165 and $237 depending on the location and complexity
Do you see NDIS participants?
We are providers of NDIS supports. We can see participants who are self-managed or 3rd party managed.
Please contact our office for further information.
What happens at the first appointment?
The first appointment is usually an assessment based on the information reviewed in the initial LTLE Questionnaire and any extra information or reports you provide.
It is also a chance for the family to meet our clinician and discuss the main issue(s). This is a chance for you to ask questions.
NB: It is best if the child can attend with only one other support person.
Can I claim rebates from Medicare or my Private Health Fund?
Your GP or Paediatrician may feel your child is eligible for rebates on up to 5 appointments per calendar year through the Medicare Allied Health Initiative. Your GP or Paediatrician will need to complete a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) form. A copy of this will need to be received by LTLE .
Private health funds all vary but most offer Speech Pathology in their “extras” cover options. You will need to talk directly to your health fund.
You will need to pay upfront for your speech pathology service at the time of your appointment, and then the receipt issued by LTLE will contain the information required to claim the appropriate rebate.
