Speech Pathologists work with individuals to improve communication and swallowing skills. There are many reasons why someone may have a communication or swallowing difficulty including acquired brain injuries such as Stroke or Traumatic Brain Injury, or progressive neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis. Communication and swallowing difficulties may also be present since childhood.
A Speech Pathologist can provide assessment and support for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome or Autism spectrum disorder.
Speech Pathologists work with individuals to empower them to make a meaningful difference in their lives. Through communication we connect with people.
Our speech pathology service specialises in:
- All aspects of speech and language
- Social communication
- Social integration and community connection
- Communication confidence
- Communication aids
- Working with others to improve communication supports
Assessment, goal setting and rehabilitation is conducted in a client's home, at one of our clinics or in the community. Working with significant others (families or support workers) is an integral part of therapy to ensure our clients have the greatest opportunity to achieve their potential.
