Speech Therapy

Connect by improving communication skills

Have a speech therapist visit you at home for a tailored personal service. Speech therapists, often called speech pathologists, are university-qualified health professionals trained in the assessment and management of communication, feeding and swallowing disorders.
They can help if you are having difficulties due to an accident or illness such as stroke, traumatic head injury, or a degenerative disease like Parkinson's or dementia.
