Speech Pathology

Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. 

There are many reasons why a person might benefit from seeing a speech pathologist. A formal referral is not generally required to see a speech pathologist. Some typical issues that may lead a person to see a speech pathologist include:

  • A child that has difficulty being understood by other children in the child care centre
  • A high school student who stutters and wishes to speak more fluently and with confidence.
  • A person experiencing difficulty speaking clearly after a brain injury
  • A person with dementia who needs assistance communicating with family and carers and making choices about their future
  • A person who is experiencing difficulties swallowing safely following a stroke.
