Kinder and Prep Screening is a highly valuable tool for preparing children to learn at school. This involves speech pathologists screening all children’s speech, language and early literacy skills in a Kinder or Prep class. The screening involves:

  • – Screening each child’s individual speech sounds, ability to follow instructions, expressive language, and foundational skills for reading and writing (i.e. phonological awareness).
  •  – Individual analysis of each child’s skills.
  • – A summary report for each child with all results and ongoing teaching/therapy recommendations to assist with their development is sent to parents and teachers.
  • – The data is collated and analysed at a whole class level and provided to the school. This assists with class planning and lesson planning.
  • – Feedback session is held for parents requiring any further information and/or advice.
  • – Feedback and mentoring session is held with teachers to assist with lesson planning, to ensure the screening results aid in the ongoing development of each child within the classroom.
