Speech pathologists can help with language development, articulation (speech sounds) and swallowing.
Speech pathologists can support your child’s language development by providing strategies and intervention to target their:
- Understanding of language – including following directions (receptive language)
- Expressive language (including use of grammar)
- Social use of language – including how they interact with others in their environment
We can also support children with alternative and augmentative communication and help to implement visual aids.
Speech pathologists can support children to become easier to understand by helping them to eliminate speech sound errors. This assists in improving their clarity of speech, and is also important for literacy development.
We also assist with problems with eating and swallowing.
