Speech Pathology Services are delivered in a family centred model of practice.
Speech and language delays
Children may experience delays in their speech and language development for a variety of reasons. Early foundations for the development of reciprocal, experience sharing communication are facilitated in the context of the parent child relationship.

Children with Complex Communication Needs (CCN) are defined as having significant speech, language and/or cognitive impairments such that they may no longer communicate in conventional ways. Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) strategies can be implemented to enable an individual to develop more communicative competence at home, at school and in the community.

AAC strategies such as Aided Language Stimulation, Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display (PODD) books, other visual strategies and speech generating technology may be utilised to support an individual’s speech and language development and increase communication competence.

Children may have difficulties acquiring competence with literacy for a variety of reasons. The Four Blocks approach can be used to assist students struggling with phonics, reading comprehension, writing and motivation.
