Information Materials – Speech Therapy Resources

SpeechNet believes in REMEDIATION, PROMOTION and PREVENTION.

REMEDIATION:
Diagnosis and Treatment of ALL communication, literacy & Feeding Difficulties in infants to adolescents.

PROMOTION:
Optimisation of children’s potential. We do not just help children with “problems”.  Services are for all children. Parent online boot camps and Pop & Top Groups ensure Parents are empowered with a bag of techniques that they can use to interact with your babies and young children to optimise early development. FOUNDATIONS are what later skills are built on –  Oral language is key for reading and academic success. Talk to us about services we can provide for GIFTED CHILDREN.

PREVENTION:
The literature clearly indicates

  • the importance of early communication development for later academic and social success as well as for development of self-confidence and self-esteem!
  • that due to the plasticity in a young child’s brain, optimum input for children well before the age of 5-6 years is paramount in order for your child to reach their full potential and beyond!
