Is Speech and Language Therapy required for you?
Does your child:

  • Find it difficult to use specific sounds?

  • Find it challenging to have a conversation?

  • Find it hard to think of a sentence to say?

  • Need support to meet their early speech, language, communication and play milestones?

  • Find it difficult to request or discuss their basic wants and needs?

If yes, they may require additional support from a Speech and Language Therapist.

A Speech and Language Therapist will offer an assessment session to identify an area(s) that your child may require some extra support with and provide an individualised therapy package to support the child and their family with the identified area(s).


Individual Therapy
