Autism

Are you concerned your child is showing early signs of autism?

​We provide private speech therapy for children with autism. We can help with diagnosis and treatment.

​Call us and book an appointment rather than letting the thoughts about autism diagnosis worry you. We work closely with children with a range of late talking issues and language problems. Teasing out if autism is a possibility is what we do. We work closely with GPs and Paediatricians in investigating the autism concerns. There is Medicare funding available for diagnosis assessment in regard to autism so call us and book an appointment.

​If you child has received a diagnosis of Autism or PDD than book with us now for a wholist approach that suits your preferences. We can aim for verbal communication while looking at alternative communication systems (ipads, picture boards/PODS, PECS). We work with children of all ages and all “levels” of Autism everyday in our clinics.

SpeechNet and Pop & Top are Autism Panel Providers so that families eligible for the FaCHSIA autism money can access speech therapy for children services with this funding. We are part of a consortium with Occupational Therapists and Psychologists. All our speech pathologist also have Medicare provider numbers and hence can provide services via the Medicare Autism Plans.

​We also provide group based services and feeding support!
