Not Only Words provides assessment and therapy programmes that are specifically designed to meet the needs of each client. Initial consultations enable Not Only Words' therapists to identify strengths and areas of development for each client. Each client and their family contribute to setting therapy goals that are functional, meaningful and achievable. Therapy programmes are regularly reviewed and updated.

The length of therapy programmes varies and depends on the type of communication or swallowing difficulty. Therapy sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on the needs of each individual. Therapy sessions are usually on a one-to-one basis. Not Only Words periodically offers group sessions for children focusing on specific areas of development such as language development and phonological awareness.

Not Only Words also provides contract services to the Auckland District Health Boards and Ministry of Education, Special Education Services on an as-needs basis. These providers are guaranteed expert, efficient and high quality locum therapy services when they are faced with acute staff shortages. Professional supervision is also provided on a contractual basis.
