"Everyone deserves a voice"

SPEECH THERAPY IS THE ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS AND SPEECH DISORDERS. SPEECH THERAPY TECHNIQUES ARE USED TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION. 

Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD NEEDS SPEECH THERAPY?

You or a teacher, Doctor, family member or friend might have noticed that your child is having difficulty with talking or listening. About 10 to 12 per cent of children will present language or speech delay. At InTouch Health Co, our speech pathologist will assess your child to determine if they have a difficulty or delay using standardised speech and language assessment tools. This assessment identifies where your child may be having specific difficulties or delays with developing language or communication skills compared to their peers of the same age.
