Communication is the essence of life
Everyone deserves to feel understood. Communication allows for interaction and connection to the world around you, and is the human means to developing and maintaining valued relationships.
Communicate and connect to a world of possibility
No matter what your individual challenges are, we can develop strategies and customised NDIS speech therapy programs so you can interact with the world around you.

Getting the most from your NDIS plan?
Advice and Advocacy
Helping to make the NDIS simple. We understand how difficult it can be navigating a new and changing system such as the NDIS. From the first phone call through to the renewal of your plan, our dedicated clinical services managers and coordinators are available to support you throughout the process, giving you the advice and information needed to make the best decisions for you.
Flexibility and Choice
Kern can offer you the highest level of expertise in physio, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work and psychology, meaning you can access all your therapy needs from the same team. This allows you greater choice and flexibility within your plan to adjust the type of therapy and frequency of services at any time, without the need to change the service booking. For example, if you achieve your physio goals early, or another therapy becomes a priority, we simply adjust your plan accordingly.
An effective therapy team plan their interventions to reinforce and support each other’s strategies. Kern’s multi-disciplinary approach maximises the benefits of every therapy session by enabling therapists to work together, leading to more coordinated therapy planning, and most importantly, better outcomes for you.
Assigned Key Worker
As an integral member of your therapy team, your key worker will be your central point of contact and responsible for the effective coordination of your therapy plan. You’ll also be reassured that every Kern therapist is supported by an experienced leadership team and dedicated clinical services managers.
“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.”
