Our therapists provide speech therapy for children and young people to help develop their communication skills

Our therapists also have specific skills to support people who have difficulty with eating, drinking or swallowing their food.

Do you, your child or young person require help to:

  • join in conversations with family, friends and teachers?
  • understand what people say and learn words to express ideas and feelings?
  • use pictures, signs or technology like Augmentative and Alternate Communication (AAC) devices to communicate?

Our speech pathologists provide children with the skills for daily interaction

Speech therapy for children and young people can help to:

  • develop communication skills to use in daily interactions, routines and activities
  • learn speech sounds, words and sentences to express ideas
  • understand what words mean and how to follow instructions
  • learn social skills
  • understand and use gestures, signs and pictures to support communication
  • identify  and use technology to assist with communication e.g. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Systems
  • identify specific difficulties with eating and drinking to feel safe when swallowing.
