Speech Pathology

At Brain Train, our speech pathology services (sometimes called speech therapy) is often play-based and centred around communication and socialisation. Children with autism and other neurodevelopmental differences can benefit greatly from early intervention speech pathology. Brain Train’s speech pathologists help to develop skills in areas including:

  • Language development – both using and understanding
  • Communication – expressing needs and wants
  • Speech (articulation of words)
  • Social interaction – developing the skills needed to communicate intuitively and successfully with others
  • Mealtime and eating strategies
  • Play skills
  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication Systems

We are a strengths-based, family-centred practice. Our speech pathologists work with individuals of all ages to support communication, socialisation, academic development and independence goals and help each person reach their potential. When helping very young children, our speech pathologists work with the child and their parents, individually, and as part of a multi-disciplinary team in early childhood intervention programs to help maximise results.
