Jack's mum

“Our Speech Pathologist helped us link with other helpful resources and made therapy fun. It was great to have someone who understood Jack’s behaviour to talk to about the problems we were experiencing at home”.

Kody's mum

“Kody loves going to see the Speech Pathologist.  He gets to play games and earn stickers and at the same time I see what he can do and what he needs help with. This means I can help him better at home. Kody has settled in much better at school this year and I think speech therapy has helped him talk to and understand other children and his teachers”

How can a Speech Pathologist help?

We can help if you or your child are having difficulties in the following areas:

We work with family members, carers, teachers and other people important in the lives of our clients to help support and implement their speech therapy program.
Communication difficulties may be due to developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech, language or swallowing food and drink safely.

“I was nervous before my first appointment because I wasn’t sure what to expect. My therapist was friendly and helped me set therapy goals. I now feel more confident to speak around people who don’t know me”.
