Paediatric Speech Therapy
Paediatric Speech Pathologists use play and fun activities with children and their families to develop speaking and listening skills.

Everyday activities are recommended to develop a child’s language skills such as reading stories, playing games and taking part in group activities. A speech pathologist will focus on developmental skills and assisting children to develop and gain confidence with their abilities.
