Session Fees

At Peach Speech we value being open, honest and clear, so we have provided the fee structure in detail for you below. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Assessment

The cost of an initial assessment will vary depending on the area being assessed, complexity of the assessment and if a report is required. Assessments are charged at a slightly higher rate than therapy, as more time is required in sourcing and reading past reports or referrals, preparation and planning, scoring of data and formation of goals. For success in therapy, it is extremely important to conduct quality assessments. You can contact the clinic to be provided with a quote for the assessment required and when you book an assessment, the price of an assessment will be confirmed with you before the initial session. *the 'service time' is the duration of the face-to-face session. The clinician will conduct planning, scoring and goal writing in addition to this, but this time has been incorporated into the fees outlines above (so no extra charges will apply).

Assessment Service Time* Charge
30 minutes $100
45 minutes $130
1 hour $180
1.5 hours $250
2 hours $380
