Paediatric Speech Pathologists work with children and young persons to assess, diagnose and treat children presenting with a range of speech, language, social-pragmatic and language-literacy issues.
As part of your visit a comprehensive assessment will be completed to evaluate a young person’s skills to identify areas of concerns and intervention. As part of this assessment, your Speech Pathologist may liaise with the child’s parents/carers, educators, specialists or other allied health professionals.
The team of Speech Pathologists at Kids at Play Therapy Services utilise a range of play-based therapeutic approaches to engage clients and make therapy fun and engaging. We believe in continuing improving the independence of all our clients, through a family-centred approached. Our Speech Pathologists work collaboratively with other therapists within the practice as well as other stakeholders involved with the family and young person.
