SPEECH THERAPY FOR ADULTS
One in seven Australians have some form of communication disability (Speech Pathology Australia 2001). Whether we like it or not, our ability to develop and maintain relationships and succeed at work depend heavily on our communication skills.
While Eastside Speech specialises in children’s therapy, we also see a large number of adults for assistance with:
- Articulation problems – saying speech sounds correctly
- Accent improvement
- Speech and communication difficulties following oral cancer, a stroke, head injury or other neurological problems
- Voice problems
We provide friendly and professional assessments and individualised therapy sessions to help you confidently achieve your full potential.
Many people reach their 20’s and 30’s and decide it’s time to “fix” that problem they have saying some speech sounds. They particularly want to fix their lisp or just speak more clearly and confidently.
Remember, it is never too late to do this and will make a great deal of difference to your speech clarity and self confidence. Please contact us if you would like to talk to someone about your speech.
USING YOUR VOICE SAFELY
Having problems with your voice starts off being annoying. However, if prolonged, it can become distressing and have a huge impact on your professional and social life. Professional voice users are at the greatest risk of developing a voice disorder.
The staff at Eastside Speech are experienced in working with clients with voice disorders and understand the importance of:
- Looking after your voice
- Raising your voice safely
If you run a business where staff are constantly at risk of damaging their voices, we are able to provide group Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) sessions to help your staff look after their voices. Please contact us if you would like to make an appointment to discuss your voice needs.
