What is Speech Therapy?

What is Speech Therapy?

Paediatric speech therapy involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of communication delays in children aged 0-18 years of age.

Speech pathologists are trained to work with children experiencing difficulties with their receptive language, expressive language, speech and articulation, fluency, social communication, reading, and writing.

Speech pathologists use the latest research to provide evidence-based, family-centred, and age-appropriate therapy to allow children to reach their communication potential.
