Professional Advisory Service

ACPC psychologists often work in collaboration with other allied health services and educators to ensure best outcomes for their clients. When it comes to delivering therapies, speech and occupational therapists as well as tutors and learning support educators may at times struggle to deliver their own therapies with clients to meet their treatment goals. Given that managing behaviours is not their 'core' training, some professionals and educators may often require a 'professional opinion' or 'advise' from experts on managing challenging behaviours to further understand their clients' needs in order to increase efficacy of their own service delivery.

 WHO IS THIS SERVICE SUITABLE FOR?

ACPC Professional Advisory Service (PAS) is open to:

  • Other psychologists that require expert opinion 
  • Speech and Language Pathologists 
  • Occupational therapists 
  • Feeding Therapists 
  • Educators working with children (i.e. teachers, tutoring, learning support)
  • Other agencies (e.g. support workers, caretakers) supporting the child

WHAT DOES THIS SERVICE ENTAIL?

Consultation for Professional Advisory Service (PAS) involves the following:

  • Initial Consult to understand the child's presentation and challenges in session
  • Psychoeducation, Advise and Coaching (PAC) on how to best manage barriers to session
  • Follow up session (if needed) to check in on progress

HOW IS THIS SERVICE DELIVERED?

PAS Service can be delivered via Telehealth (Video Conferencing or Phone) or via Email depending on flexibility and availability of both parties. 

WHAT ARE THE COSTS INVOLVED?

Psychologists providing the PAS guidance have set aside time specifically to discuss a specific case with you where they could be working with a client instead. Generally the cost for PAS is about $120 for a 30-45 min consult, which may be covered by the client's funding as a liaising service. 

For further information regarding PAS options and process, please do not hesitate to email our clinic at info@acpcpsychology.com.au
