Learn More about our Speech Pathology Services


We endeavor to provide quality therapy at competitive rates. We recommend an initial consultation, which includes formal and/or informal assessment to determine the client's communication difficulties. A service plan is then drawn out which includes assessment, evaluation and recommendations. For clients that qualify, Medicare will provide rebates for up to 5 therapy sessions. Please speak to your GP about a Care Plan or contact us for further information. Clients diagnosed with Chronic Diseases can also be eligible for a Medicare rebate.

Funding is also provided for early intervention services of children with Autism under the Helping Children with Austism package. More information about this package and the Better Start Initiative is available at the FaHCSIA website. We also have private health claim facilities at the clinic for clients who have health fund covers that include Speech Pathology.
