Speech Pathology (Kids)

Our Speech Pathology service is designed for young children, from birth to school entry age, who are experiencing difficulty with their speech and language development.

A Speech Pathologist can help your child to develop speech, language and communication skills.

Appointments are available at Yea Kindergarten & Kinglake Children’s Centre. The clinicians will work in partnership with you and your child to provide the best opportunity for your child to develop their speech and/or language skills.

After the assessment of your child, we will work with you to create a care plan to help your child achieve the plans’ agreed goals as well as liaising with all involved in your child’s support network to ensure consistency of approach.
