Where are the Speech Pathology services delivered?

Behaviour+ delivers Speech Pathology services in a variety of environments to suit your family’s needs. This means that we focus on the environment where skill building will be the most beneficial.

We deliver services at the following locations:

  • Behaviour+ Centres
  • Home
  • Preschool
  • School
  • The community (e.g. parks and shopping centres)

We can even offer services in two different places such as school and the home, if skill generalisation becomes appropriate or there are varied goals. For instance, if your child has learnt a particular skill in the centre then we can also go to the home or school to ensure that the child is able to use the skill in a different environment.

How much do the Speech Pathology services cost?

For NDIS services, Behaviour+ charge as per the NDIS Price Guide. During the initial assessment our team will discuss your goals, individual circumstances and personal preferences. We then provide options around service delivery, and you have the final say of how that looks. The Behaviour+ team will then create a Schedule of Supports which is a detailed report of the services you will receive. Our aim is to ensure that your budget will be utilised in the most effective way to achieve your goals.
