Speech Pathology

Speech Pathology is the scientific study and treatment of defects, disorders, and malfunctions of speech and voice.

Helping you communicate effectively

When should I see a Speech Pathologist?

If you or your child has difficulty communicating through speech either through developmental delay or disability, a Speech Pathologist will provide invaluable treatment. From stuttering to lisps and confidence in forming words, a Speech Pathologist uses a range of verbal and non-verbal techniques to draw out an individual’s personality through speech and voice.
