Evidence shows that accessing early intervention can have significant,
positive impacts upon a child's development

  • Speech Pathology

    What is Speech Pathology?

    The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders
        Speech Pathology stems from two key words: speech meaning communication and pathology or pathologist meaning someone who studies cause and effect.
        Together, they collectively refer to a person who assesses, diagnoses and provides therapy for communication disorders.
        A paediatric speech pathologist supports children from 18 months through to 18 years.

    Speech Clinic offers assessments and therapy for speech sound difficulties, language difficulties, fluency difficulties, reading, writing and social communication. Speech Clinic happily offers guidance on accessing services for families who are seeking secretion management, swallowing and voice rehabilitation.

  • Speech Clarity

    What is Speech Clarity?

    The ability to speak clearly to be understood

    Speech clarity refers to how clearly a person’s speech is produced - that is, how accurately a person is pronouncing their speech sounds. Speech clarity development begins as early as X months, when infants develop the ability to make p, b, w and m sounds. By three years of age, a child should be clear at least 75% of the time when they are interacting with an unfamiliar person. By 5 years of age, a child’s speech should almost be adult-like in its clarity.

  • Language

    What do we mean by Language?

    The ability to understand and use words and sentences to share meaning.

    Language is a large clinical area which involves both how we understand (receptive) and use (expressive) words and sentences. A person may have difficulty in either or both domains. A younger child who is experiencing language difficulties, may have difficulty understanding instructions or with using words or sentences. An older child with language difficulties may have difficulty understanding or telling stories.

  • Literacy

    What is Literacy?

    The ability to read and write.

    Speech pathologists also support children who experience literacy difficulties - namely, difficulties with reading or writing. A speech pathologist can provide support for reading accuracy, slow or effortful reading or reading comprehension. Speech pathologists can also provide intervention for writing difficulties - whether for writing sentences or in specific genres, or for spelling.

  • Fluency

    What is Fluency?

    The ability to speak smoothly.

    Fluency refers to how smoothly words are said. A breakdown in fluency leads to a disorder known as ‘stuttering’. A child who stutters may repeat sounds, words or phrases. They may also stretch out their sounds or it may seem that their words ‘get caught’ or blocked in their throat.

  • Social Communication

    What is Social Communication?

    The ability to use language socially to interact and play with others.

    Social communication refers to how a child uses their language socially to interact with their peers. A child who has difficulties with social communication may find it difficult to use and understand others’ body language (or, non-verbal communication). A child who has social communication difficulties, may also find it difficult to initiate and maintain friendships and may experience frustration or anxiety when interacting with peers. Understanding and making predictions about other peoples’ thoughts and feelings may also be associated with social communication difficulties.
