Language Disorders

About 9% of the Australian population has a moderate to severe language disorder.

This means they struggle to learn their first language.

Issues may present as:

  • Beginning to talk at a later than average age
  • Slow development of grammar skills
  • Difficulty following instructions
  • Difficulty learning vocabulary
  • Difficulty in putting thoughts into words
  • Poor performance at school

The earlier these issues are found and addressed, the better the outcome for the individual. Our Speech Pathologists will assess the client’s skills and abilities, make recommendations and provide them with the appropriate therapy.

Wherever possible it is our aim to teach family members so they too can support and encourage their loved ones. Working together gives them the best long-term results.
