Better Start Speech Pathologists treat children for a range of difficulties, including speech delays and disorders, language delays and disorders, literacy difficulty, dyslexia, stuttering, autism spectrum disorders and developmental delay. Parents can request assessment for children from 18 months to teens. Consider the list below to identify the areas in which you may hold concerns.
Speech Pathology assessment and therapy is available for children at home or in their education setting with no additional charge for travel. This has many obvious advantages:
- Children are relaxed in a familiar environment
- Children are seen during the day when they are alert and engaged
- Teachers and carers can be involved in the program and goals
- Children can access therapy regardless of family work commitments and time constraints.
Our speech pathologists draw from many years experience in education settings. We have strong links with both private and public schools. We have a thorough knowledge of the support systems in place for children who require additional support. We can help children at preschool and continue to support them at school.
We are registered providers for the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and FaHCSIA.
Contact us to discuss your child’s needs or refer your child with our online referral form to request a speech pathology assessment.
