Communication therapy

Whatever your communication goal, we will help you achieve it through tailored therapy sessions at your home, in our clinics, at school or in the community. Your personal communication goals might include being able to clearly articulate sounds, say what you mean to say, be able to read and write and be able to speak smoothly without stuttering.

Swallowing and Mealtime Management

If you have difficulties with eating, drinking or swallowing (dysphagia), Better Rehab Speech Pathologists can help. Common signs of dysphagia include coughing, gagging or choking while eating and/or drinking, frequent chest infections, or feeling as if food, drink or saliva is stuck in your throat or going down the wrong way. If you experience any of these symptoms, our Speech Pathologists can offer support by assessing your swallowing function, providing swallowing therapy and education, recommending diet modifications or referring you to medical specialists if further investigation is required. We can also develop mealtime management plans if you need assistance from others for safe eating and drinking.

Building Social Skills and Relationships

If you have trouble interacting effectively or appropriately with others, a Speech Pathologist can help you develop social skills to have more enjoyable social interactions and more rewarding relationships with others. This can be helpful if you find it difficult to understand how others think and feel, how to start a conversation, or how to respond to people in appropriate ways.
