Speech and Language Therapy
A Speech and Language Therapist (SLT), also called a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), is a university-educated, specialist professional who is qualified to assess, diagnose and provide therapy for children and adults with speech, language, voice, fluency and social communication difficulties and disorders.
Individualised Therapy Programs
School Screening and Consultation Services
Our SLTs are also available to consult and provide supportive recommendations to modify the learning environment for students who may be at risk for communication difficulties, but do not currently need direct intervention from an SLT.
Workshops & Training
Your child may be experiencing difficulties with their language (understanding others and expressing themselves), speech (using clear speech sounds), fluency (stuttering/stammering), or social communication (using their language to interact well with others), which is impacting their learning and self-confidence. FFL can carry out flexible assessments to determine what support can help your child reach their learning potential and be a confident communicator.
