Speech Therapy for Children - Sunshine Coast Speech Therapy

We strongly believe that your child is unique. This means we will provide an individual therapy program tailored specifically to your child’s needs. Therapy should be an enjoyable experience for both you and your child while getting results. We encourage parents to be involved as much as they can, following through with activities that you will be confident to do at home with your child. We are open and approachable so that at any time you have any questions we are available to help.

We also can provide collaborative assessment and therapy with an Occupational Therapist.
