Speech Therapists Brisbane

If you have just found out your Brisbane Kid needs speech therapy then don’t worry. Lots of kids have early speech issues and the vast majority of them are easily overcome with some simple speech exercises. You might also meet with a kids’ speech therapist to find out that you are worried about nothing and that many of the speech problems that you thought were issues are age appropriate and likely will resolve. Some kids and babies also see speech therapists in Brisbane for feeding and swallowing issues. Seeing a speech therapist is fairly common. The point is, don’t worry. The other suggestion is to not listen to the anecdotal stories and unsolicited opinions and advice of friends and family unless they happen to come with an awesome Speech Therapist recommendation. Your first step if you are worried about your child’s speech is to see your local GP and ask your child’s teacher for their opinion.  These two people are professionals who are trained to identify early problems and refer you on to  speech therapist who is ultimately the only qualified person who can confirm an actual issue.

What is Speech Pathology

According to Speech Pathology Australia, “Speech pathology is a health profession that falls under the area of Human Communication Sciences. Speech pathology, previously called speech therapy, is the diagnosis, management and treatment of individuals who are unable to communicate effectively or who have difficulty with feeding and swallowing”
