Speech Therapy

Speech therapy for children in Sydney helps with the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders for young people. This can include difficulties with listening, speaking, language comprehension, reading and writing, stuttering, deficits in using one’s voice, non-verbal communication, swallowing issues and social skills. Our qualified team works with NDIS funded and self-funded young people who have communication difficulties and need speech therapy for children due to developmental delays, learning disabilities, intellectual impairments, autism, cerebral palsy, brain injuries or stroke, hearing deficits, eating and drinking difficulties, or other conditions or injury that can affect a child’s language and speech. Speech therapy sessions for teenagers can be tailored for your child’s individual needs.

Our Speech Therapists can assist with transition to school or employment, and can help and support other significant people in the young person’s life to better communicate with them, such as family members and teachers. This is particularly important in speech therapy for teenagers, as otherwise these youths can feel isolated. Speech therapy for teenagers also helps them to increase their independence, which is a priority for young people who are moving towards adulthood.
