What's involved?

A skilled speech therapist will assess your individual circumstances and develop customised therapies and activities to enhance your communication or swallowing abilities.

They will:

  • Collaborate with you, your family, and friends in a nurturing setting to enhance your skills and boost your self-confidence
  • Provide you with techniques to enhance your self-expression and clarity of speech
  • Suggest suitable speech and communication apps or technology if appropriate
  • If required, design a strategy to enhance your swallowing capabilities and devise a mealtime plan to make eating and drinking more comfortable for you

We’ll work together to understand what’s right for you.

Depending on your needs and objectives and to ensure you get the best possible results, your personalised therapy program may also incorporate additional therapies, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology and more.
