Sounds like Speech

Does your child have unclear speech?

Rocky Bay’s Sounds Like Speech clinic may be the right service for you.

Sometimes children drop sounds in words, run syllables together or struggle to get words out, which makes their speech unclear. Unclear speech impacts on many areas such as literacy and self esteem. Children with unclear speech may benefit from seeing a Speech Pathologist. Rocky Bay’s Speech Pathologists offer individualised therapy for issues that lead to unclear speech around articulation, phonological processing, dyspraxia, dysarthria and voice.

Using contemporary approaches such as the PROMPT technique, Rocky Bay will work with you to support your child’s speech and language development. Together we will tailor your program and measure outcomes based on your goals.
