The Speech Pathology Department provides services for children aged 0-6 years (prior to school entry) with moderate to severe needs in two or more areas of development on a standardised assessment and are persistent in nature and those who have a formal diagnosis e.g Specific Learning Disability, ASD or a severe language/ articulation disorder.
The department provides formal assessment of articulation, phonology, language, pragmatics and fluency skills. If after assessment therapy is deemed appropriate, intervention is provided in six session modules (excluding assessment) and children are eligible for multiple modules of therapy, if deemed necessary. We provide intervention for receptive language difficulties, expressive language difficulties, phonological disorders, articulation disorders and pragmatic difficulties. All services are centre based.
