Our Speech Pathologists are able to provide comprehensive assessment and treatment for children and adults who demonstrate challenges with the accuracy of their speech production, their ability to listen and to express using words and language, their capability for literacy and learning behaviour, their social communication skills, their eating/swallowing competency and with the sound of their voice.
Our Group Therapy programs enable you and your child to learn important fundamental skills for speech, listening, language, literacy and social skills that enhance their skills learned in individual therapy.
Group therapy programs such as Club Yicketty Yak, Club Literacy and Inward Bound supports integration of your speech therapy goals into formal schooling classrooms and further. Our programs enables more access to therapist time at a cost effective rate. They teach group dynamics and project development whilst we focus on the behavioural, social, emotional and psychological development of each participant.
Online Speech Therapy
Speech therapy online enables you to attend your speech therapy lessons for individual and group therapy at home. It also allows for direct integration with your school program and to share knowledge with your teachers at your school or kindergarten. At Optimal Communications we strategically remove the obstacles for distance, availability and funding that can restrict your access to vital speech therapy support. Why? Because we understand the value long term of the early intervention in you and your child’s life.
Programs, Products & Equipment
Speech therapy products and equipment are developed and made available to make the activities creative, exciting and memorable for children using the Phonic All Star Speech and Literacy correction program. This comprehensive step by step syllabus is implemented with your Speech Pathologist into your individual and group therapy program at the Gold Coast clinic as well as your online program. We welcome sharing and integration into your home, kindergarten and school program for fast traction of the gains you are getting with our clinical program.
