What are the prices and duration of the programme?

Full details are given on the pricing page. But here they are for speed!

Consultation £10 = 30 minutes. You will discuss the form you filled in and we’ll be asking suitability questions for telepractice to make sure it’s going to work out for you practically and what you want particular help with and your objectives around therapy.

Review/Assessment. £39 for 30 minute review. We recommend this is you’ve had a recent assessment already. A full assessment will be 90 minutes. Post consultation we will advise on review or assessment. After an assessment you will be provided with a report from the therapist they will let you know when to expect this. It will detail recommendations around any issues.

Course £499. You get 360 minutes of time. The first session will be 30 minutes long. For the following sessions you will agree lengths of time with the therapist. This could vary from 30 minutes (20 mins therapy and 10 mins review) up to 45 minutes.

What kind of things will we do in a session and outside sessions?

After the assessment or review you will agree targets with the therapist and the therapist will design a programme of intervention over 360 minutes. The sessions will incorporate activities and games to keep the sessions lively, fun and engaging. The therapist will also explain to the parent the objective of the activity so the parent can understand the process and be encouraging. Outside the session where appropriate the therapist may email you activity worksheets to practice to help with progression and keep up the intensity of practice.

Will I need more than one course?

It all depends on the individual and what other support they have had or are having outside Iris Speaks. The therapist will design each course with targets so that you see progression within the 450 minutes. At the end of this you will assess and agree together the next steps. You are under no obligation to continue to book another course.

Can you go over my checklist of technical requirements?
  1. Strong broadband connection. Run this test to see if you pass.
  2. A computer/laptop with a video camera – minimum 13″ screen size – no netbooks!
