Speech Pathology

What is Speech Pathology? Speech Language Pathologists (or Speech Therapists) assess, diagnose, and treat individuals with communication delays and disorders. This may include individuals who have difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. Some Speech Pathologists also specialise in swallowing disorders.

Therapy

It's all fun and games!

Fun and engaging therapy tailored to your child and their needs!

Our therapy rooms provide the perfect environment away from distraction to teach your child new skills, and share with parents tips and suggestions for home and school. We start with goal setting based on your child's needs, establish a rapport and find motivating activities to help achieve success, and provide appropriate homework. 

Groups
