SpeechNet Speech Pathology Brisbane works with children with poor speech skills. They may be slow talkers, unclear speech, dyspraxia (developmental dyspraxia), lisp, cant say their /s/ sound, /r/ sound etc,, have phonological delays or phonological disorders (sound pattern errors such as leaving off the last sounds in words), articulation disorders. From about 3 years age about 75% of a child's speech should be clear to someone that does not know them well. It is easier to correct sound early than wait to the "bad habits" get really stuck. Some sounds like the /s/ sound takes longer for children to learn (4-5 years of age for some children) - but if the /s/ sounds sounds like there is air escaping from the sides of their mouths - best not to wait. Look on our website www.speechnet.com.au for ages and stages of when sounds should be said correctly. OR give us a call - sometimes an assessment and some ideas to move a sound along is all they need. No Doctors referral is necessary and you if you have private health insurance Speech Therapy may be claimable. If your child is attending a child care centre or a kindergarten, we can provide bulk screenings for very cheap prices (Brisbane and surrounding areas). Give SpeechNet a cal! It is important that children are saying sound correctly before they start school so that it does not make reading and spelling harder. We use a range of techniques such as PROMPT, cue articulation, phonological awareness therapy.
