As part of your therapy journey your therapist we may recommend some specific therapy programs to assist in achieving your goals including:

Hanen programs are evidence-based and world-renowned parent-training programs designed to teach parents how to implement speech and language therapy into their everyday activities with their child.

We run small social skills groups for children experiencing difficulties fitting in at school or with their peers.

Support your child prior to commencing school or during school transitions to develop the skills they need to be confident and independent at school.
