Positive Speech for Adults

We assess and treat adults for:

  • aphasia;
  •  apraxia of speech;
  •  dysarthria;
  •  stuttering;
  •  voice;
  •  communication issues stemming from traumatic brain injury;
  •  other communication delays, disorders,  and problems, including voice issues.

Assessments

Clients are assessed so that we can:

  •  ascertain whether he or she has an OM, language, speech, literacy, stuttering, voice or other disorder and, if so,
  • recommend how best to treat or manage it.

Assessment involves identifying any underlying problem and understanding how this may affect the client’s participation in his or her daily activities at home, work and in social situations.

We use a combination of formal and informal assessment methods, including standardised assessments, interviews, observations, analyses of language and speech samples, perceptual assessments, and tailored tests to produce a holistic picture of a client’s communicative strengths and weaknesses across a range of environments.

One-on-one OM, speech, oral language, voice and stuttering therapy

Should a client be assessed as having a disorder – for which the research evidence supports an effective speech pathology intervention – we will work with the client and his or her family to develop a management plan, with appropriate specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound goals.

For clients who seek speech intelligibility and pronunciation change, neither of which is considered a speech or language disorder requiring treatment, we assess and train via an evidenced-based method, to sound ‘good’ and clear worldwide.

A standard one-on-one-therapy session is 45 minutes.
