Speech therapy focuses on a child’s ability to understand spoken language as well as communicate verbally or non-verbally for self-expression. Therapies are offered on an individual basis and in groups for children to improve language & social communication.
Strategies are tailored for each child’s particular challenge. By utilising a multidisciplinary & collaborative approach it is possible for a child to reach their full potential.
