Fremantle Speech Pathology Services has been conducting screening projects in Perth metropolitan schools for close to 20 years. Currently, we screen over 700 students per year from Kindergarten to Year 1. Over this time, we have a deep understanding of what is deemed as 'average' performance, as well as presentations that contain 'red-flags' for delayed speech, language, and literacy development. 

We have now opened up this screening program for all children, not just those at schools we are contracted to. 

Our screening program is designed to provide a rapid and reliable profile of a child’s proficiency across crucial areas required for a strong performance at school. Results can be useful in determining if a child needs additional support or if they can be extended in their learning.

The areas assessed vary depending on the child's year level:

Kindergarten ($90)

Speech 

Language 

Pre-Primary ($90)

Speech 

Language

Preliteracy 

Phonics

Year One ($100)

Speech 

Language 

Preliteracy 

Phonics 

Reading 

Spelling 

 

The Junior Primary Screeing Proram runs at the clinic over the school holidays.The session can take anywhere between 30 - 60 minuttes to complete. 

The cost invludes the assessment session, analysis of results, and a written report. These screening assessments can be claimed through private health depending on your level of cover.
