Meet our Team
We have a team of fully qualified, highly experienced, dynamic and fun loving speech pathologists. We are committed to ongoing professional development and service evaluation to ensure our Sunshine Coast kids receive innovative and motivational support for their communication needs.
All sessions are conducted in a confidential and relaxed atmosphere. Sessions are individually designed for your child to build on their strengths, improve areas of need and help your child reach for their potential.
Information and parent training are also provided in each session along with a take-home book containing activities for you to try at home.
We are dedicated to nurturing the physical and emotional health and well-being of the children and families in our care. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. We recognise each child as a unique individual and look forward to meeting you and sharing this journey with you.
