What Is Play with Words?
Play with Words is a Brisbane Mobile speech pathology practice established by highly experienced and qualified speech pathologist Dallas Fong. At Play with Words, they recognise that communication is one of the most important life skills, and they offer therapy, training and advice in helping children to develop these skills. Their therapy services are available for infants right through to adolescents. The Play with Words clinic is situated in Springwood, South Brisbane, but they can also provide a mobile speech therapist at your home or your child’s school, kindergarten or early learning centre.
How Can Speech Pathology Help?
As parents, we want our children to be able to communicate their needs and wants, to interact well with others and to build their self-esteem. Unfortunately, developing communication skills can be difficult for some children, which can lead to learning issues at day care or school, as well as social problems such as difficulty in building relationships. Speech pathology from Play with Words can help by developing children’s language and communication skills through regular weekly or fortnightly sessions of individual therapy which are carefully tailored to be both fun and effective.
Why a Mobile Speech Therapist can make a difference
Play with Words provides friendly speech therapy services at affordable rates (see their website at playwithwords.com.au). They are flexible with parents’ busy lifestyles and for anyone unable to visit their clinic, they are happy to travel to homes, schools, kindergartens and day care centres from Brisbane’s North to South. This mobile speech therapist service also has the benefit of supporting the child within their everyday environment and making the therapy relevant to that situation.
All of Play with Words therapists are experienced in working with children within an educational setting, with special interests in autism, speech development, language development and literacy development.
Play with Words is also a registered service provider of the Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) package and the Better Start for Children with Disability initiative, and works closely with a paediatric occupational therapist for more comprehensive and therapeutic therapy in complex developmental conditions.
What Services Does Play with Words Offer?
On top of their individual therapy sessions, Play with Words also offers several programmes, such as the Play with Words school readiness programme —Ready, Steady, Prep! — for children aged 4 to 6, and their Reading and Spelling Group for those aged 5 to 11.
They also offer free screening clinics at day care centres and kindergartens across Brisbane. And for anyone worried about their child’s progress or simply wanting to check the developmental norms for their child’s age group, they can book for a formal and/or informal individual assessment by emailing [email protected]s.com.au or calling 0434 589 769.
