In communication, making yourself understood is as important as the listener's ability to hear. Speech-Language Pathologists are expert at helping with both expressive language (making yourself understood) and receptive language (understanding what others say, or comprehension). Even normally developing children can benefit from the enhanced classroom participation skills a Speech-Language Pathologist can impart.

Our university qualified and professionally active Speech-Language Pathologists provide objective assessment, therapy and other treatment options for a broad range of speech & language disorders in a professional, well-equipped clinical setting.
