How can a Speech Pathologist help?​

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.

Short blocks of speech therapy are ideal for school readiness, or for any concerns you are having with your child’s speech milestones.
