Speech Pathology

What is Speech Pathology?

Speech Pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. Speech Pathology could improve your quality of life by helping you to communicate better with friends, family and others.

How can Speech Pathology help you?

Speech pathology aims to help people who can’t communicate effectively and can help you if you have problems with speech, language, communication, fluency or your voice. They often work with children helping a child’s speech develop.

They can also help with augmentative and alternative communication, in which they help people who have trouble speaking find other ways to communicate.

What a Speech Pathologist can assist you with:
  • Developmental delays in children
  • Stuttering
  • A stroke or other brain injury
  • Dementia
  • Hearing loss
  • Feeding difficulties/disorders
  • Social skills

Individual Therapy Plan

Individual assessments give us a snapshot of your communicative strengths and needs, and help us to tailor an individual therapy plan to work towards your goals. Our speech pathologists are able to diagnose each person’s specific problem and devise a treatment plan that best suits their needs.

How long are sessions?

Therapy sessions are typically 1 hour in duration. Sessions can occur as frequently as required, but in most cases, this is either weekly or fortnightly.

Age Range

You may either choose to have these sessions in our clinic, the client’s home, educational facility or workplace.
