Speech & Language Therapy

Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) plays a vital role in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Our SLT’s are able to assess speech, language, cognitive-communication, and oral/feeding/swallowing skills. Holding a minimum of a Master’s Degree and a DHA License, our SLT’s are also able to identify types of communication problems such as: articulation; fluency; voice;receptive and expressive language disorders and the best way to treat them. Our SLT’s are fluently trained in: Makaton Sign Language; ASL Sign Language; Hanan; PECS; and other AAC devices such as proloquo2go and quick talker.

SLT is provided for students attending the day program between 8.30am-1.30pm. In addition to this, children enrolled can access additional after school therapy services. These additional sessions run between 2pm-5pm. These afternoon sessions [between 2-5pm] are also available to the general public, however we do have a limited number of appointments. Our SLTs are able to provide assessments and treatment plans for children, adolescents and adults with a broad range of diagnoses. Please contact us should you wish to make an appointment or get more information.
