What is a Speech Pathologist?

 

A ‘Speechie’ is professionally trained to advise, diagnose and work with both children and adults who have a communication disability.

We work in all of the following areas:

  • Language

  • Articulation

  • Fluency (Stuttering)

  • Voice

  • Pragmatics

  • Eating / Drinking

When & how to contact a Speechie?

 

  • If you are concerned about your child’s development

  • Your child is getting frustrated, aggressive or even withdrawn from socialising or communicating

  • Your child doesn’t remember new vocabulary

  • They dribble excessively

  • Their sentence length is very short & not improving

  • Your child has difficulty concentrating/paying attention

  • Speak to your preschool teacher, what do they think about your child’s communication?

 

Our Services:

 

We are open 6 days a week at two convenient Inner West locations. We offer centre based intervention in both Earlwood and Leichhardt, as well as school and home visits upon request. A holistic approach is always taken to ensure that every professional working with your child is on board.

 

Assessments: Diagnostic assessment to provide you with information about your child's receptive and expressive language skills. Assessments are usually 60 minutes long and parents, medical professionals and schools are provided with a comprehensive report.

 

Interventions: An individual learning program is tailor made for your child. Sessions are typically 30-45 minutes long, depending on you child's needs. Children are often given homework scrapbooks and resources for extra home and school/pre-school practise.

 

School/Pre-school visits: Arranged on request for further communication with staff. Observations and assessments can also be conducted here.
