We can also treat these areas using a range of approaches. We offer both individual and group appointments. The groups are aimed at parent education and prevention of later communication, academic and/or social difficulties.

SpeechEase will also use a range of visual aids and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) methods to ensure your child is fully understanding what is expected of them and to model an alternative way of communicating while their speech develops. With your help, SpeechEase will determine which AAC method best suits your child's needs, source/personalise the device, and assist you to integrate the device into your daily life.

SpeechEase offers 'More Than Words' which is a parent education program for parents of children under 5 years of age with Autism or Social Communication Disorders. The program provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their child reach their full communication potential.

The aims of this program are to:
-Improve social communication and back-and-forth interactions
-Improve play skills
-Improve imitation skills

The 'More Than Words' program runs for 10 weeks consisting of 7 group information sessions and 3 individual home visits. Numbers are limited per group.

SpeechEase also offers assessment and therapy for fluency (i.e. stuttering) and voice problems in children.

SpeechEase is highly trained in assessing and treating mealtime difficulties. This service is for babies and children who have trouble chewing and swallowing foods as well as for children who eat a limited range of foods. ​

SpeechEase can also provide training for daycares, schools and community organisations at your preferred location.
