Speech Pathology for Children

What is Speech Pathology?

Everyone deserves to feel understood. Communication allows for interaction and connection to the world around you.

Speech pathologists assess, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering, using voice as well as supporting people who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely.

How can we support you?

Our speech pathologists will work on the goals most important to you. This may include;

  • Comprehension and following instructions, including listening and attention skills
  • Language development
  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) including low and high tech options
  • Articulation, speech clarity and fluency
  • Safe and enjoyable mealtime management (chewing, feeding and swallowing ‘Dysphagia’)
  • Social skills
  • Using your voice

“I became a speech pathologist because I wanted to be a health care professional that children were excited to come and see. They don’t just receive therapy, they get to come and play games and it’s generally seen as a positive experience for them and their families.”
