Speech Language Pathology

Speech Pathologists assess, diagnose and treat children’s communication difficulties, such as supporting the development of speech, language and literacy skills.

Our Bright Door speech pathologists partner with parents and children to support development of:

  • Receptive language
    (understanding what is heard/read)
  • Expressive language
    (expressing oneself both orally and in writing)
  • Articulation and phonology
    (making speech sounds and being able to speak clearly)
  • Social skills
    (using communication to socialise appropriately such as taking turns)
  • Literacy
    (reading and spelling)



How our speech-language pathologists can help

We will work closely with families, carers and members of the multi-disciplinary team to achieve the best outcomes for each and every child.

Our team has specialist skills in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of disabilities and delays including children and young people with:

  • Developmental disabilities and disorders
  • Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
  • Autism
  • Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS)
  • Speech delays and disorders
  • Global developmental delays
  • Late talkers
  • Literacy

Speech pathology services are available at our three clinics: Toowong, Fig Tree Pocket and Townsville.
