Speech Pathology for Children

Adelaide Paediatrics offers speech pathology for children. Our Speech Pathologists are all highly qualified to deal with a broad range of speech, language, communication and feeding issues.

Why does my child need speech therapy?

Your child should be saying their first word around their first birthday, about 10 words by 18 months of age and about 50 words by 2 years of age (including two-word combinations). If this is not happening then an assessment with a speech pathologist may be warranted.

  • Early communication development
  • Play skills
  • Late talkers
  • Speech difficulties
  • Language delays/disorders
  • Phonological awareness
  • Difficulties with spelling, writing, reading comprehension
  • Stuttering
  • Social skills
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Non-verbal communication

  • Cleft palate
  • Feeding difficulties/disorders
  • Dysphagia
