Paediatric Speech Pathology has been operating in the western suburbs of Melbourne since 2009. We offer clinic-based services as well as liaising with schools and kindergartens for children with a range of needs.
We provide assessments for the purposes of diagnosis, school funding applications, NDIS funding applications and general therapy goal setting. We offer assessment of:
- Social skills
Individual therapy sessions
Individual therapy sessions are our most common form of intervention. We set goals for your child dependent on the outcomes of our formal assessment as well as parent, teacher and client goals. Our goal is to ensure communication is fun and enjoyable for the whole family and hope to reach our clients’ goals through both regular intervention and home practice.
Where possible we will work with the relevant professionals such as paediatricians, psychologists, teachers, tutors as well as our occupational therapists in the clinic.
School or Kindergarten liaison
We strive to deliver client-centred care and ensure that all our clients are reaching their best potential in a range of settings. Where appropriate our therapists may deliver intervention at school/kinder as well as educating school/kinder staff as to how they be involved in helping our clients achieve their goals.
