Letter of Support for services or resources €25

This letter is a one page clinical letter requested by the parent or another third party to state the current clinical need and professional recommendation.

E.g. Letter for DCA purposes, letter to school for additional supports.

We would always recommend confirming with the person asking you for a Letter of Support for your child exactly what information they are looking for. 

If the intention for the letter is to get access to funding or is part of a package required in order to access additional services, often they may need more details than can be contained in a letter. In these cases we will recommend a Summary report instead.

Some tips on what to ask are in our Parent Tips Page here.

We are happy to provide reprint invoices for clients to assist with health insurer claims, however all accounts must be settled in full beforehand.

About our Pricing

CATTS assessments are flat fee assessments

(This means that CATTS take the risk on completing the Assessment.)
Sometimes an assessment will be offered by a practice which will take place over a couple of hours, in a single sitting. We recognise that not everyone, especially children (in some cases with special requirements), are in the right frame of mind to perform to their best on demand. If you only have a short time booked with your therapist and your child is having an off day, this will skew the results.

In Practice
Some children can undergo a full assessment within a couple of sessions, however we will always split the assessment across two separate visits to ensure that we are seeing them on different days at least. There are times however, when everything with your child ‘flows’ and the therapist can complete all the required tests in one sitting. This is a positive outcome.

CATTS Assessments Locations
The assessment can take place in any of our clinics (See Our Locations), or home, depending on the individual. If you have concerns about behaviour in certain environments (e.g. school/ creche) we may observe them in that environment also. With some children, what may seem to you like the best environment (e.g. at home, where they are comfortable) may not be ideal in reality once the therapist arrives. In these cases we will suggest a clinic visit to continue the assessment. The opposite is also possible, and as always, it will be dependent on the individual circumstances and discussions with you.

CATTS Assessment Tools
An assessment for Speech and Language is not just ‘playing with the kid’, or ‘having a chat’ with the parents.  At CATTS we use standardised, evidence based tests. These form the bedrock for the assessment and future therapy (if required).

We have invested in the best clinical assessment tools available, and actively research the latest thoughts and research in the disciplines to ensure that as the State of The Art changes, we can provide the best tools (clinically and evidently proven) to our clients. As such when you receive an Assessment, you can be assured that the tools used to assess are quantifiable, and measurable. This allows comparison with others at similar levels to arrive at the percentile range of ability.

We also believe that the informal approach works really well (with both children and adults), and as such we wrap as much of the standardised testing in fun (for both sets of clients!)

CATTS Assessment Reports
We ALWAYS provide a written report. A verbal report is not sufficient, and is unusable by any other professionals, or you.

After the assessment has been completed, we will usually try to send you a copy of the finished report before your next meeting with us, though sometimes, we will bring you through the report at the next therapy session.

At this session, which usually is the first step of the therapy programme, we will spend time with you going through the report, and debrief you on its contents. This is a time for you to ask questions and seek clarification on proposed therapies and recommendations. This is often found useful by clients who need to be referred to other therapists as part of their programme (e.g. Psychology). Despite any urge to want to ‘get on with it’, the time spent here pays off dividends later, as this is he bedrock on which your, or your child’s therapy programme will be based.

We hope that this has helped answer any questions you may have over how we deliver our services to you, however if you have any additional questions concerning your assessment please discuss it with your therapist, or, please contact us using the Contact Forms on this site, via email, or phone.

Thank you
