Reports are used for a number of reasons; a report written by our professionals can be used as a second opinion, for your own use or just to summarise the information gained through the assessment or treatment process. We also produce specialist reports for case managers and solicitors.
Why do I need a report?
A speech and language therapy report provides detailed evidence of what the speech and language therapist has found during an assessment or through therapy, this is useful for you to keep safe if you ever need to refer back to the findings. It can also be a great way of reviewing how far the child has progressed in terms of their eating, drinking and swallowing abilities. You may need a report for the following reasons:
- Detailed report after an assessment to show the speech and language therapists findings.
- A report following a review to provide evidence of any progress the child has made.
- A report of swallowing difficulties can be sent to other professionals to share information in order to help the client.
- Reports for case managers with a client with swallowing difficulties.
- Reports for solicitors with a client with swallowing difficulties.
- Reports to provide evidence for a Education, Health and Care plan.
- Medico-legal report for claimant and defence.
What will be involved in a report?
The content of the report is highly dependent on the type of report that you require and the eating, drinking and swallowing difficulty of the child. A regular report will include the findings that the speech and language therapist has gathered, what happened through the assessment or therapy and any advice, strategies or treatment options that may be appropriate for you. If another professional is involved in your child's care, the findings they have gathered may also be included in the report.
