We believe that every family has the right to access therapy and as a result, we can provide therapy at the clinic, in your home and also in your child's school.
Parent education is a key factor in the therapy that our SMART Spot Speech Pathologists provide for our clients. Our Speech Pathologists will give you user friendly tips and tricks on how best to support your childs communication development during everyday activities.
Our Speech Pathologist are more than happy to work in partnership with your child's teacher to ensure that they feel confident to implement appropriate curriculum adjustments that will help your child to succeed and also to ensure that they are aware of the communication skills of your child and the impact they may have on your child's ability to participate within the curriculum.
Our Speech Pathologists work closely with other professionals involved in your child's care. We believe that when a child is seeing more than one clinician at a time, clinicians should have a high degree of communication to ensure that shared goals are established.
