Play Based Speech Therapy
When working with young children, Play-based speech therapy is our clinician's go-to! Our Speech Pathologists work on your child's speech and/or language goals around a toy or play activity. We work on creating opportunities to teach and for your child to practice skills whilst having fun! It's not just play, it's play with purpose. But why play-based speech therapy?
Children are more engaged and motivated during play! Learning through play helps capture their attention, and helps them make connections with real life events and create long lasting memories that extend beyond the therapy session. These memorable moments support learning and retention!

Paediatric Speech Therapy
Our facilities provide a modern and professional environment in which our highly trained speech pathologists can help your child develop their skills and achieve their full potential.
Centre based therapy is preferable for our clients as we have all therapy resources are available at our centre whereas limited resources are brought for each home/school visit. Parents/carers can also actively attend sessions to see what is being practiced and can bring home written program suggestions after each appointment for faster therapy progress. We currently offer our speech therapy services at our clinic in Payneham (Metro Adelaide) and Salisbury North (Northern Adelaide).
Speech Pathologists in schools
School visits are a terrific way to language and literacy (ability to read and write) goals within the school curriculum. We will be able to collaborate with their teachers closely and pre-teach or reinforce vocabulary, concepts or literacy areas to support them to excel in school. It allows us to work closely with facilitators to ensure that they understand the specific needs as part of your child's treatment plan. It also allows us to observe how your child interact with others in a "real live" scenario.
Tele-health Speech Therapy
We have noticed that some individuals actually engage and respond better when sessions are held on video-conferencing platforms! This option is also ideal for those who are just unable to travel to a Speech Pathologist to access services or is feeling unwell on a particular day. We have experience using Tele-health to support individuals with a variety of areas such as voice, speech, language, AAC and literacy.
