Our team of Ipswich based Speech Pathologists are ready to support your child with disability with their communication and feeding. We’ve recently expanded our Allied Health team into the Ipswich area to enable more children and young people to live better lives, to become more independent and to reach their potential.
Where does Speech Therapy take place?
We’re able to support your child in any of the ways to suit your child’s and your family needs.
Why might my child see a Speech Pathologist?
Speech Therapy is delivered by a university trained Speech Pathologist. Your child might see a Speech Pathologist for any of the following reasons:
Articulation disorders – if your child has trouble with forming certain word sounds
Fluency disorders – affect the flow, speed and rhythm of speech, stuttering is one example of a fluency disorder
Resonance disorders – occur when a blockage or obstruction of regular air flow in the nasal or oral cavities alters the vibrations responsible for voice quality
Receptive disorders – are when your child has trouble understanding and processing what others say
Expressive disorders - difficulty conveying or expressing information
Cognitive communication disorders – difficulty communicating because of an injury to part of the brain that controls your child’s ability to think
Aphasia – an acquired communication disorder that affects ability to speak and understand others. It can also affect ability to read and write
Dysarthria – slow or slurred speech due to a weakness or inability to control the muscles used for speech
