Our speech pathology team

Improving your abilities and maximising your quality of life

Our speech pathology team consists of specialists who assess, diagnose and treat communication and swallowing disorders.

If you require speech pathology services, a speech pathologist will conduct an initial review to understand your needs. We will then work with you to provide education and set goals to improve your abilities and maximise your quality of life.

Treatment may include specific strategies, individual exercises, face-to-face therapy or a program to continue with independently, if applicable.

Communication therapy may target speech, language, cognitive communication, voice and fluency. A swallowing review will identify and recommend safe swallowing techniques and optimal diet/fluids.

Therapy will be specific to your needs and goals, and may include:

  • establishing a reliable means of communication
  • increasing your speech clarity
  • cognition and memory support
  • management of swallowing disorders through education of safe swallow strategies, diet and/or fluid modification, and therapy to reduce the risk of aspiration (food or fluid entering the lungs)
