Speech Therapy

Learning Links offers speech and language therapy to children who have difficulty expressing themselves or understanding and following what others are saying. Speech and language therapy can help support and enhance a child’s ability to learn and address:

• Pronouncing sounds, voice problems or stuttering (articulation)
• Expressing and understanding language
• Ability to hear sounds that make up words in spoken language (Phonological awareness)
• Social language skills used in daily interactions with others (pragmatic skills)
• Following directions and answering questions
• Pre-reading skills

Assessments

A comprehensive assessment is an important first step in understanding a child’s speech and language strengths and needs. Areas assessed include: receptive and expressive language, pragmatic skills, articulation, phonological awareness, stuttering and voice. The assessment allows our speech pathologist to tailor appropriate intervention suited to the child’s learning style and provide useful strategies for the home and classroom.

Free screening tests are also available at select centres to provide a quick and effective way of identifying children who may be at risk of language disorders. Find out more here >

Therapy Program

Individual speech and language therapy sessions are provided in 30 minute sessions.

Speech Pathologists use specialist strategies and programs adapted to the individual needs of the child.

We understand that every child is unique with different strengths and difficulties and that each family has their own set of challenges and goals. We tailor the best possible program for each child and offer families access to a caring and committed team of highly qualified experts across therapy, teaching and psychology.
