We are currently unable to offer speech pathology services. If you have the appropriate qualifications, experience and interest working with children in a multidisciplinary rural setting please contact us to discuss opportunities.

Speech pathologists are trained to assess and treat children who have a communication disability. They also work with children who have difficulties swallowing food and drink; have difficulties with social understanding and attention skills. Communication is the process of being able to understand and to be understood. It is something that most of us take for granted, however 1 in 8 people have difficulty with understanding others or being understood by others. Communication difficulties in children are the result of problems with speech, using and/or understanding other people or being understood by people.

 

A speech pathologist may be able to help your child:

  • If they have delayed speech sound development
  • Are late in talking
  • Are finding it difficult to understand spoken words
  • Have a stutter
  • Are having issues with eating skills
  • Have an identified developmental issue such as Autism.

If you have concerns with your child’s speech and language, we can assist you to help improve these areas for your child. If you would simply like to know more about typical development and language strategies, we can help too.
