The 'Bilan 30' programme is a parental assistance and aid programme in support of children's language development. The Audiology Service (Service audiophonologique) of the National Health Directorate (Direction de la santé) automatically invites all parents to enrol their child in the 'Bilan 30' programme when they reach the age of 30 months (two and half years old).
Language acquisition may appear easy and natural, but in fact is a very complex development process that begins in early childhood and often raises many questions. As part of 'Bilan 30' programme, the speech therapy team of the Audiology Service is available to parents to answer any questions they may have on the subject and provide professional and personalised advice on stimulating their child's language development .
The 'Bilan 30' programme and all other speech therapy measures proposed by the Audiology Service are intended for children from the age of 2 and a half years until they enter Cycle 1.1 of Luxembourg Basic Education (or the equivalent, if the child is schooled outside of the Luxembourg educational system).
At the parents' or a physician's request, a child may also be seen by a speech therapist of the Audiology Service before the age of 2 and a half years.
The 'Bilan 30' programme is a free public service.
An invitation is automatically sent by post to parents with children aged 30 months. After receiving this invitation, you can register your child for the Bilan 30 programme via MyGuichet.lu (see section "Forms/Online services" .
Parents do not need to be invited to enrol their child in the Bilan 30 programme. They can do so at any time simply by contacting the Audiology Service.
At the appointment, a speech therapist will propose several language games to the child so that they can assess all aspects of the child's communication abilities and provide the parents with personalised advice. They will also perform a hearing test. If necessary, the speech therapist will put in place a speech-language monitoring programme in conjunction with the parents.
