Speech Pathology promotes and develops effective communication in young children.
Speech Pathologists use play and fun activities with children and their families to develop speaking and listening skills. Everyday activities are recommended to develop a child’s language skills such as reading stories, playing games, going to the park or playing with pets. Children may be seen with their families or in small groups.
Our Speech Pathology services are available to children who are prior to school entry.
Children who are attending school are to be referred onwards to school-based services or private Speech Pathologists.
Our Speech Pathologists can assist children experiencing any of the following problems:
- Difficulty understanding instructions
- Not saying many words
- Difficulty constructing sentences

- Speech is hard to understand
- Mixes up or leaves out sounds
- Husky or hoarse voice
