*Fees are subject to change without notice. The above fees are current as of the 1st of July 2020.

Initial Appointment 

If it is your first session with us, start here. This initial appointment involves working with you to plan your individualised service based on a comprehensive case history and informal observations. This is an important step before assessment as it allows us to gain information vital to selecting the most appropriate assessment for your child. 



Speech or Occupational Therapy Assessment Session 

If required, the need for assessment will be discussed at the initial appointment. This session/s will involve comprehensive assessment (often still largely play-based) and will be followed by a detailed report. We allow up to an hour for assessment sessions.



Therapy Session

After your initial consultation and any required assessment, we will provide evidence-based therapy in a fun play-based environment to help your child achieve their goals. This can be at our practice at Henley Beach (for SP) or in you child's school/childcare/kindy etc. See the relevant fee above for your session location. Find out more about our services here.


*NDIS therapy and travel fees are charged according to the current NDIS rate. Contact us for more information. See our NDIS page here.

*Teletherapy (online sessions) are charged in line with the hourly NDIS rate, consisting of 45 minutes of face-to-face and 15 minutes of therapist time for preparation and note writing.

Session Types

Funding Options

We also recognise that families sometimes need help with the cost of sessions and recommend exploring funding options including Medicare plans, Private Health Cover, NDIS and other options.


Chronic Disease Management Plan (Medicare) 

Also sometimes known as a GP Plan, or a Team Care Arrangement, this plan entitles eligible clients to five subsidised sessions per calendar year. A GP assesses your eligibility and fills in a form that refers your child to an allied health professional. Contrary to the title of the plan, eligibility does not require a patient to have a 'chronic illness'. See the Speech Pathology Australia fact sheet for other instances that may provide eligibility.
***The current rebate rate is $52.95. The full session fee is paid first, and the rebate is paid back to you by medicare, either immediately back onto your savings card, or by claiming from Medicare online/in person.***
Please bring your Medicare card with you on the day, as we will swipe the card through the Hicaps machine, usually allowing the rebate to be paid directly back into your bank account. A signed copy of the plan must be provided for us to process the claim. More information about the Plan can be found here


You can SUPPORT YOUR GP by providing THEM with the following:

The referral form found here.

A Fact Sheet about Speech Pathology and the Plan found below. This is very helpful to pass on to referring GPs to assist them with determining eligibility for the plan. Please note, it is entirely at the discretion of your GP to determine eligibility for the Plan.


Private Health Cover

Your private health insurance may have extras cover that provides a rebate for Speech Pathology Services. Check with your provider to see if you are able to claim for these services. For your convenience, we have a HICAPS machine at Say Hooray that can allow you to claim on the spot, and pay less out of pocket. 


National Disability Insurance Scheme

Children with a diagnosed disability, including those who have Autism or developmental delay, may be eligible to receive funding under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). See our quick reference page to learn more about the NDIS.
