What is the duration of each session?
Each session conducted at the Centre runs for approximately 50 minutes.
 
How often will my child attend?
Sessions are conducted on a weekly basis. A parent accompanies the child to the Centre for one-to-one intervention. Parents are advised to stay for the duration of the lesson. Where appropriate, multiple sessions can be arranged. Please keep in mind that research shows, the intensity of intervention is a contributing factor in its overall success.

How long will my child need to attend the Centre for?
As each child is different and comes with a variety of strengths and weaknesses, it is very hard to determine the length of time a child will need to attend the Centre. Constant feedback and recommendations are given as the child’s skills are monitored and evaluated throughout their time at the Centre.

What age groups are catered for at the Centre?
Children attending the Centre for literacy intervention range in age from 4 to 15 years of age. Children attending the Centre for speech therapy range in ages.

Do you offer virtual sessions?
If you are unable to bring your child to the centre for any reason (living interstate, work commitments etc.) or simply prefer working online, Narelle offers sessions via Zoom (no added cost).

What are the costs involved?
For a break-down of costs and fees please contact our Centre for a comprehensive Parent Pack.
         
What if my child misses a session?
Sessions run throughout the Queensland school term and are invoiced as such. If your child misses a session and at least 24 hours notice is given, 1 make-up session will be organised within the same school term.

Will my child be required to complete homework?
Homework tasks will be given at the end of each session to reinforce and help consolidate the skills and strategies the child has been learning. At times, it may be recommended that school homework be suspended whilst a child works through the intervention program. This would be in consultation with the parents and the school.
