Speech Therapy

separator-image

The world and its possibilities are open to us when we can communicate effectively with others. Living with a disability can make ‘normal’ communication more difficult, but that doesn’t mean we can’t participate in a full and rich life. Rocky Bay Speech Pathologists are here to partner with you and find the communication method that works for you – whatever that looks like.

Speech, sign language, body language, manual or electronic communication devices – Rocky Bay Speech Pathologists take a holistic approach to communication and include your friends, family, carers and support network in this approach, to surround you with people all using the same language.
