How speech language pathology can help your child

These skills are vital for learning socialising and emotional development. If your child has issues that impact speech and language development, a speech and language therapist can help.

- Delayed speech development

- Developmental delay
Sessions involve using evidence-based activities to achieve positive outcomes, while ensuring your child is comfortable, engaged and having fun!
