How we can help

We provide quality speech pathology services with the care that families need in a relaxed environment. This ensures your child feels at ease. Rather than appointments, we turn visits into enjoyable playdates. Our approach is tailored to each child’s needs, with evidence-based techniques and a personal touch. Additionally, we actively involve parents, empowering them with strategies to support their child’s progress at home.

Discover the three main areas of our practice below, all provided in our comforting home-based environment.

  • Orofacial Myology is the study of the oral and facial muscles in relation to their movement patterns for daily life. The muscles of the face, lips, tongue, and jaw should function in a way that supports healthy breathing, eating, swallowing, and speaking.

  • Myofunctional Disorders
    Poor movement patterns are known as myofunctional disorders and may be identified as:
    – mouth breathing
    – poor sleeping
    – behavioural issues
    – tongue thrust
    – messy or fussy eating
    – tongue tie
    – drooling
    – thumb or dummy sucking
    – high arched narrow palate
    – issues with dentition and malocclusion
    – orthodontic problems
    – difficulty with speech, eating or swallowing.

  • Myofunctional Therapy is the use of exercise based techniques that are applied to the head, face, mouth and throat. Collaboration with other professionals, including Airway Focussed Dentists , Osteopaths and Chiropractors is essential for optimal outcomes.

Speech and Language Screening Services

What is a Screener?

When it comes to speech, language and literacy delays, early intervention is crucial for future academic and social success. Sometimes families are unsure if their child needs speech therapy. That’s when a screening can be beneficial. 

Screenings are designed to provide a quick estimate of your child’s communication skills. They allow an initial impression of your child’s abilities to determine if an in-depth assessment is needed.
