Welcome to Ipswich Speech Pathology Clinic
What is a Speech Pathologist?
A Speech Pathologist has been specifically trained to assess and treat people who have a communication disability. Speech Pathologists complete a degree at university which covers all aspects of communication including speech, language comprehension and expression, writing, reading, signs, symbols and gestures. Speech Pathologists also work with people who have difficulties swallowing food and drink.
Why do we need Speech Pathologists?
Communication disabilities are the result of problems with speech, using and understanding language, voice, fluency, hearing, or reading and writing. One in seven Australians has some form of communication disability. This means that one in seven people has a problem understanding other people or being understood by people.
