Speech Pathology

Our Certified Practising Speech Pathologists are members of Speech Pathology Australia and tailor interventions to maximise client outcomes.

Speech Pathology for Children

Our paediatric speech pathologists are passionate about working with children to target the following areas:

  • Fussy eating, problematic feeding and swallowing difficulties.
  • Working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (including diagnostics).
  • Speech (intelligibility/clarity).
  • Expressive language (use of words, sentences, gestures and writing to convey meaning).
  • Receptive language (understanding).
  • Functional communication (augmentative and alternative communication, e.g., iPad).
  • Reading/writing (literacy).
  • Education for parents and carers to maximise learning outcomes.

Your child may benefit from speech pathology if they:

  • Are limited to 4-5 foods and gag on certain textures.
  • Do not use at least 6-10 words consistently by 18 months of age.
  • Have a vocabulary of less than 50 words at 24 months of age.
  • Have difficulties pointing to named pictures in a book by age 2.
  • Have difficulties answering simple questions, e.g., ‘what’s this?’, relating to familiar objects by age 2.
  • Produce less than 2.5 – 3 words in a sentence by age 3.
  • Have very unclear speech at age 3.
  • Difficulties asking simple questions, e.g., “Where cookies?”, by age 3.

We can visit your home, school or kindergarten.
