Speech pathology is the diagnosis, management and treatment of individuals who are unable to communicate effectively or who have difficulty with feeding and swallowing. Our Speech Pathologist is not the primary therapist for children who are admitted to Allowah, but works with community or hospital based therapists to maintain the consistencies or interventions in all environments.
Our Speech Pathologist assesses, diagnoses and manages swallowing issues for the children while they are at Allowah. She also supports access to community home based services or referrals to appropriate clinics.
Our Speech Pathologist maintains a close relationships with the Speech Pathology departments in large hospitals, such as The Children’s Hospital Westmead and Randwick.
Allowah Disability Support Services provides outpatient speech pathology and can also provide additional speech pathology for children admitted to Allowah should parents so desire.
