Speech-Language Therapy
What does speech-language therapy entail? 

Speech and language therapy services provide assessment, diagnosis and treatment for children with speech, language, communication, feeding and swallowing difficulties. Speech-language pathologists work to help children communicate effectively by supporting the development of their verbal and non-verbal skills.  

Our therapists can assess, diagnose and support with:

​​

  • Specific speech delay/disorder (including speech dyspraxia). This includes a range of possible difficulties involving speech sounds.

  • Specific language delay/disorder.This may involve difficulties in understanding what is said or difficulty in expressing ideas and putting words together.

  • Social communication impairments.This includes difficulties in understanding and using communication socially, to interact with other children/adults.

  • Stammering and selective mutism.
