Speech Pathology

Student led healthcare for the Canberra community

Children Speech Pathology Clinic

The Speech Pathology student-led clinic provides services for children and adolescents aged 2-16 years.

The clinic aims to provide Speech Pathology students with opportunities to work with children and their families. All services are provided under the supervision of a qualified speech-language pathologist.

The clinic works closely with children/adolescents and their families to develop the oral and written communication skills that are necessary for successful and active participation in a range of social, educational and family environments.

This may include assessment and support/therapy for:

  • understanding and using spoken language
  • producing clear/understandable speech/articulation
  • producing fluent/smooth connected speech
  • using language to achieve social/interaction goals
  • learning to read, write and spell.

Intervention is generally provided through individual support sessions. At times, there may be group programs available which may include, but are not limited to:

  • early language stimulation
  • school readiness
  • social skills
  • fussy feeders.

Participation in groups will require first attending an individual session to identify individual needs and goals and determine suitability for the group.

Adult Speech Pathology Clinic

The speech pathology student-led clinic provides speech and language services for adults with acquired brain injuries (stroke or traumatic brain injury) or neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia) that cause communication difficulties.

Students provide person-centred therapy for clients and their families to facilitate/enhance communication in a variety of settings.

The students in the clinic provide assessment/therapy for:

  • Communication skills
  • Spoken language
  • Speech production and speech intelligibility
  • Understanding spoken and written information

Intervention may be individual and/or group sessions. We work in collaboration with the clients and families to develop intervention goals.  We have groups that provide communication supports to caregivers and their families.

As services are provided by students under supervision, no rebate is available through private health funds, Medicare or third party providers.
