Speech & Language

What is Speech and Language Therapy?


Speech and language therapy provides treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing. Speech and language therapists (SLTs) are allied health professionals.


What is the role of a Speech and Language therapist in school?

SLTs work directly with children, their families, and other education professionals to develop personalised strategies to support a child's individual needs. They also provide training to education professionals so they can identify the signs of speech, language and communication needs and support them appropriately.
