Speech Pathology

From learning how to communicate more effectively to eating and drinking safely, our Speech Pathologists will help you enjoy life.

Our Speech Pathologists and NDIS rates.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds support services that will help you live your best life. This includes therapeutic supports like speech therapy.

Why is speech pathology so important? If you're having trouble making yourself understood, or need help to communicate effectively, it can be frustrating. More than that, it can prevent you from doing the things you want in life. That’s where our Speech Pathologists can help.

But speech therapy is about more than helping you speak and communicate more clearly. In fact, our Speech Pathologists can help improve your life in all sorts of ways, from being able to eat and drink safely to making friends, enjoying hobbies and studying or getting a job.

How our Speech Pathology team can help.

Our Speech Pathologists help you connect with the people around you. The people who support you. Your friends. People you meet in the community.

We work with you to develop a range of communication skills, as well as provide practical advice and solutions that help you stay safe and be more independent.

In addition to helping you communicate more easily and effectively, we can help you:

  • develop your social skills
  • eat and drink safely
  • read and write
  • use visual aids or assistive technology to help you communicate.

Frequently asked questions about speech pathology.

What exactly is a Speech Pathologist?

Speech Pathologists are health professionals who study, assess, diagnose and treat ‘communication disorders’. In other words, they help people who have problems communicating.

This covers difficulties speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills and stuttering, but also includes eating and drinking.

Our Speech Pathologists have lots of experience and specialise in helping people with disability develop skills and strategies that make it easier to connect and communicate with other people.

What are your NDIS rates for speech therapy?

The National Disability Insurance Agency provides an upper limit on the cost of all services provided through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Our therapy services are covered by the NDIS, so they fall within that limit.

If you’d like more information about our NDIS rates, or if you’d like to speak to one of our NDIS Support Coordinators about your funding and plan, please contact our friendly team.

What funding do you need in your NDIS plan for speech therapy?

You need ‘Capacity Building: Improved Daily Living’ funding in your NDIS Plan. Moreover, you’ll need funding for a minimum of 10 hours within your current plan period.

Contact us to find out more about using the NDIS to fund your therapy.

How long do I have to wait before I can see a Speech Pathologist?

When you contact us, we’ll get back to you within two business days. Once we have a signed service agreement in place, we’ll arrange your initial visit within two weeks.

Does my Speech Pathologist come to me, or do I come to you?

It’s your choice. As long as you’re 16 or over, live within 30 minutes of Jandakot and you’re eligible for NDIS speech pathology, we can visit you or you can visit us.

We offer flexible appointment hours, as well as online therapy options, and adhere to COVID-safe best practices.

Will your Speech Pathologists work with other professionals in my life?

Yes. If you feel your needs will be better supported by another provider, we will work with them to deliver the support you need.

Do your Speech Pathologists specialise in dysphagia?

Yes. Dysphagia is when people have difficulty swallowing foods or liquids, ranging from mild difficulty to complete and painful blockage. We have pathologists who are experienced in dysphagia within our Speech Therapy team.
