Speech in Focus, Speech Pathology Services

Great News!  Face to Face services will resume from
Wednesday 1 December 2021.

updated 27 November 2021

We have made important changes, and it is important you understand them before you visit.

 Our Commitment

  • We will follow guidelines made by NSW Clinical Excellence Commission COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control, Speech Pathology Australia, and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
  • We will be monitoring our team through surveillance testing regularly.

Conditions of Entry

  • We have a two-person (2) limit per session.
  • Show your COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate or Medical Exemption Certificate.
  • If you are not vaccinated, show a negative PCR test result (no greater than 3 days old).
  • Entry is refused to anyone who presents with illnesses, including COVID-19 like symptoms: coughing, runny nose, or a fever.
  • If you are a casual or close contact, you cannot attend the clinic. 

 What will happen when you arrive

  • Enter the clinic through our courtyard a few minutes before your session. This gives you time to:
  1. Scan the QR Code
  2. Sanitise your hands. You are welcome to use your own sanitiser, too.
  3. We will give you a fresh mask to wear.

Your Session

  • Masks are required for those older than 12 years of age unless it impairs your communication or causes distress. 
  • We will clean and sanitise the common areas, consultation rooms and resources before your session.
  • The waiting areas will be closed.  You will need stay in the consultation rooms. 
  • If you cannot stay in the consultation room or you have another child with you, we will ask you to return to your car and wait.
  • We will be wearing masks and maintain social distancing, so your therapist will involve you in the sessions.
  •  If you or your child show any illnesses or COVID-19 like symptoms during the session, we will respectfully stop therapy, and your session will continue as telepractice (telephone or Zoom), from your vehicle.

 Payments and leaving the clinic

  • All payments will be through EFTPOS, PayAdvantage or Bank Transfer from 1 December 2021.
  • Cash is NOT accepted.
  • A Pay Advantage payment setup is preferred for your safety and convenience.
  • Contact us to set this up before your appointment. This will allow you to exit the premises straight after your session.
  • When your session is finished, leave the clinic through the front door.

 What if there is a COVID-19 case at Speech in Focus?

  • In the event of a known positive case at Speech in Focus, you will be notified, and we will act as per public health guidelines.
