Child Therapy Services

Sparking Speech provides high-quality, evidenced-based Speech and Language Therapy services for both children and teenagers.

We believe in the importance of adopting a collaborative approach with parents, teachers and other health care professionals in order to provide an individualised and effective therapy approach for each child/ teenager we work with. Each client’s individual pattern of strengths and weaknesses is considered in targeting therapy goals and ensuring that learning is a positive and rewarding experience. SNAs, resource teachers and other school staff are more than welcome to attend therapy sessions in the clinic to learn how to implement the therapy goals in school.
