We paid $65 per 30 minute session, and it was somewhere between $150 - $200 for an assessment and report (which allowed, I think, an hour for the assessment and half an hour for report preparation, or thereabouts).
that's in Brisbane, at the sp's office.
We were able to claim some of that back through extras on PHI.

My Mum is a private speech therapist who charges $55 for 30 mins and $250 for an initial assessment.
I think that she is under-charging....she does heaps of prep work , reports , liasing with parents/teacfers/caseworkers , paperwork , making/organising resources etc for each client.
Most therapist need to charge so much for the initial assessments because the testing thing they use is ridiculously expensive and you need to pay a truckload for all the forms (it can't be photocopied).

We pay $75 for a 30min session every fortnight. $40 is covered under our PHI for half the year, then we reach the limit. Doh!
We've just paid $440 for our yearly report (including the written report for our records). That's two hour long testing sessions over two weeks.
Pricey? Yes! Worth it? Definitely!!
SD has come *such* a long way in just the 2yrs she's been going. We are now at a stage where we are getting ready to drop down to monthly as SD has gone from severe difficulty in all her problem areas to mild difficulty/average and was even slightly above average in one section! Yay!
Our ST constantly liaises/nags the school to ensure she's doing similar units with SD's classroom and liaises with our psych on a monthly basis. She's fantastic!
