Receptive (understanding) and Expressive skills (putting words together into meaningful sentences, phrases). Language difficulties can impact a child's ability to access the community in education and social networks. We work to develop language from birth through to their teenage years.
The ability to make sounds clearly. We work with children who have mild difficulties in making correct sounds, to more complex difficulties including craniofacial anomalies (eg. cleft lip and palate.)
The ability to read and write is an important aspect of communication. We work with children at the sound level of reading, right through to understanding and writing longer stories.
Alternative and Augmentative Communication. Children that require alternative methods of communication are welcome at our clinic. All our clinicians are PODD trained, and practise Key Word Signs regularly.
We are an Autism-affirming practice, We work with neurodiverse individuals to recognise their own strengths and to be able to advocate for themselves. We help neurodiverse individuals to communicate effectively in any environment.
