Communicate with Confidence
Speech pathology aims to improve your child's communication skills so that they can fully participate in daily activities. Learning to communicate effectively means that your child speaks and listens in a way that can impact on their lives now and in the future. Every child is unique, and the objectives will be determined by their specific needs and goals. Clinicians are also trained to assist those who are having trouble eating, drinking, or swallowing their food.
At AHP, our therapists have worked with children who have experienced trauma, have complex needs, developmental delays, or a disability.
Children can benefit from speech therapy in the following ways:
- Develop communication skills for everyday interactions, routines, and activities
- To express thoughts, learn speech sounds, words, and sentences.
- Understand the meaning of words and how to follow directions improve your social abilities
- To aid communication, learn to recognise and use gestures, signs, and visuals.
- Determine how to use technology to help in communication and how to do so.
- To feel safe when swallowing
- Identify unique eating and drinking challenges.
