​Speech Pathologists assess, diagnose and treat children with difficulties in the areas of language, speech sounds, voice, stuttering, feeding and swallowing.

Your child may have a difficulty in any of the following areas:

  • Feeding - sucking, swallowing or chewing adequately
  • Speech - producing speech sounds clearly (consonants or vowels)
  • Stuttering - producing speech smoothly without interruptions or repetitions (eg. stuttering)
  • Language - understanding and using words and sentences
