Speech Therapy 

Assessment and Treatment

Our team of speech therapists provide assessment and treatment to individuals with speech, language, communication needs and voice difficulties. 

Assessment

Assessments are an essential part of the speech and language therapy process, they allow the speech therapist to gather information about the individual's skills and the difficulties they are experiencing. We provide a range of assessments, to assess the speech, language and communication needs. Our speech therapists often use a combination of both formal and informal assessments. Some of the common standardized assessments we offer include:
