Communicate - Educate - Innovate

Welcome to Speaking Therapy

“Deep inside, every individual with a communication disability has a voice in their heart, a voice that you may not be able to hear with your ears, but it’s a voice that’s valuable, that’s beautiful, that’s unique and full of personality. This voice and who they are is what the world needs to hear.” – Our Vision

‘Speaking Therapy’ is a team of Speech Pathologists and Special Educators who are passionate and committed to improving the lives of individuals with a Speech or Language disability. We service individuals with a range of needs, including people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, and people with Autism or other developmental disabilities.

Our team recognises the challenges people with communication difficulties may face as they navigate around a speaking world. Living in a world where no one seems to understand them can be very frustrating for the individual, and they usually express this frustration through tantrums or other challenging behaviours. We also know that individuals with communication difficulties may also need assistance with other areas of learning.

Hence, Speaking Therapy is committed to helping individuals who have communication challenges to, not only gain a voice through the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), but also to improve in their Education and Literacy Outcomes. We will assist our clients with strategies to help manage their own behaviour and emotional needs so that they can reach their learning potential. 

We are currently servicing clients across Sydney, Australia.
