Your child might benefit from seeing a Speech Pathologist if they have speech and language issues including:

  • Difficulties being understood by other people
  • Difficulties understanding what people say
  • Stuttering

A Speech Pathologist can also help your child if they:

  • Have an intellectual disability and/or need help finding alternative ways to communicate
  • Suffer from a history of ear infections and need help with communication
  • Need assistance learning to read.

Our Speech Pathologist will assess your child’s ability and then design a program that will help them develop the language skills they need.

During the assessment, the Speech Pathologist will:

  • Talk with you and your child about what they are experiencing trouble with.
  • Ask you about your child’s development, including their medical history.
  • Enquire whether anyone else in your family has speech or language difficulties.
  • Look at how well your child understands instructions and questions.
  • Listen to your child talking to get a good idea of the words and sounds your child uses.
