Speech Pathology

A better way to communicate

Speech Pathology is about helping people who are unable to communicate effectively, who may have poor voice quality or have swallow/eating difficulties.

Our Speech Therapists believe that there is ‘a better way to communicate’ and that everyone, especially those with complex communication needs, should have access to a functional communication system that is a right fit for them. Improving safety at mealtimes is also a high priority for our Speech Pathologists.

Treatment sessions may include:

 

  • Development of communication aids / resources to aid receptive and / or expressive language
  • Adjustments to food and / or fluid textures to improve safe swallowing
  • Voice therapy to improve poor voice quality / loss of voice and instruction for how to use vocal cords effectively and safely
  • Training in adaptive techniques
