Chat to a Speech Pathologist for Free!

Here in the technology age, there is SO much information out there. A quick scroll through facebook as a parent will bombard you with numerous articles about how you should manage your child’s behaviour, the latest gadgets you should be buying, and opinion pieces from both ends of the spectrum on just about everything! As such, we are getting overloaded with information and it is difficult to filter through it to find the well-researched, high quality information that can guide what you do as a parent.

If you have existing concerns about your child’s speech, language and literacy skills, a trip to Dr Google is not advised, due to the vast amount of inaccurate information out there. And further still, if you don’t have concerns, but your child’s daycare centre or school has raised concerns about their development, it gets even more confusing.

This is why Grow Therapy Services is offering a free 20 minute chat with one of our qualified Speech Pathologists. You can book one of these chats and do it via the phone or a skype call. A quick chat to a speech pathologist can help to put you on the right path and make decisions about if and when your child needs speech pathology services. Our therapists will not seek to book you in unless it is absolutely necessary because we don’t like to make parents outlay unnecessary money for appointments – kids are expensive enough as it is!

Visiting Speech Pathologists of Perth’s Northern Suburbs

Recent statistics tell us that one in five children aged 4-5 years have a language impairment. And one in ten children will have difficulties with reading and writing at school. These are children that will benefit from Speech Pathology intervention, and here at Grow Therapy Services, we find that a great way to help these children is in their home or school environment. In this way, the children are comfortable and can immediately learn how to apply the skills they are learning in their sessions.

 

Grow Therapy Services consists of home and school visiting Speech Pathologists working with children and their families in Perth’s Northern Suburbs. We don’t bring along many toys or resources to our sessions as we prefer to show you how you can utilise what you have at home to work on your child’s speech, language and/or literacy goals. Our practice is built on a strong culture of family-centred values and therapy techniques.

 

Benefits of having a Speech Pathologist come to you:

  • Children are in a familiar environment where they feel comfortable
  • Siblings can either join in sessions (where possible) or play with their own toys, rather than sitting in waiting rooms
  • You can see how your child’s goals can be embedded into your home and daily activities
  • Schools can work closely with your child’s therapist to ensure goals are being collaboratively targeted
