Speech Pathologist Newcastle

Speech pathologists work with children, adolescents and adults who have difficulty communicating through speech and language or those who have trouble eating and drinking safely.

They can support the development of literacy skills, communication, understanding and use of language. They use specialised assessment tools, such as the Hanen, Total Communication, MULTILIT and THRASS methods, to assist them in diagnose the source problem and develop a treatment plan.
