Our Team

We are a team of experienced, certified-practising speech pathologists based in North Strathfield, in the Inner West of Sydney. We help children and adult clients, and other speech pathologists.

We build on people’s strengths and interests to improve their communication skills, including their speech, language, voice, reading and writing. We also help people who stutter, children with selective mutism, and people who have difficulties communicating in social and professional settings.

Our client services include assessments, and evidence-based treatments and supports for potential communication challenges.

We also help speech pathologists, NDIS providers, teachers and parents to support children and young adults to develop their speech, language, reading, writing, and stuttering with evidence-informed therapy resources, speech pathology business resources, and NDIS templates.
