Teacher giving child assessment

At Lizard Centre, our team of qualified paediatric speech and language pathologists assess, diagnose and treat:


• Language delays/disorders

Speech therapy can help your child in a number of critical areas:


• Understanding what is being said to them such as questions, instructions and the meanings of words


• Expressing their ideas and needs through verbal words or pictures/gesture. It can also help them to use appropriate sentence structures, grammar and words.


• Pronouncing words clearly so others can understand them


• Developing and maintaining friendships through using appropriate social skills such as having a conversation, using eye contact and understanding non-verbal cues such as facial expressions and gestures


• Reading and writing at school for learning in the classroom.


• Eating a range of foods safely and efficiently and making mealtimes a positive experience
