Child development is complicated. Even though your child’s talking may be your main concern, we also look at behaviour, movement, attention, play, and other areas of development. Knowing your child’s ‘big picture’ development helps us design the most appropriate therapy, just for them.
Come as you are
Finding the right therapist and the right treatment can be a challenge. Parents often feel pressured to know what to ask for and to understand everything. You don’t need to! Building an understanding of your child’s whole profile starts at the beginning. Whatever stage you’re at, come as you are.
‘I didn’t expect to be so supported as a parent. I thought therapy was all about my child.’
How our therapy works
‘Working with SpeechPathology.me is just a lovely experience.’
How we work with you
We work with both children and teens. A client’s therapy intervention and wellbeing is a team effort. You are your child’s best resource and your involvement in their therapy is a critical factor for success. We also connect with your child’s professional team, including doctors, your school, OT, psychologist and other support providers.
Working with teens requires a different framework and creating a sense of connection and safety is our priority. Services for teens are offered with their differences and needs in mind; individual, group or out-of-clinic sessions may be offered. Our support is all about the individual becoming their best, most engaged and functional self.
‘Our child is learning strategies and skills he will be able to use as he grows up. They’re life skills that he will use in everything he does.
