Changing Lives Through Communication
Helping Children With Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing and Feeding.
Our Approach To Therapy
Every child is different and every family is different! If therapy is recommended Straight Talk Speech Pathology targets the child’s goals in an individual style for each child and family. Parents are encouraged to be a part of the therapy journey. Our aim is to show you ways to support your child’s development so that they are receiving ‘therapy’ even when they are not with their therapist. Everyday routines are such a rich source of therapy opportunities and we love showing parents how you can maximise these opportunities to help your child grow. Therapy is usually based at one of our clinic centres in Bibra Lake or Gosnells, but can also be arranged at your child’s school, child care centre or home.
Reading & Writing
Being able to read and write well is an extension of speaking and listening. Children need to be able to read words and make sense of what they read as well as express themselves through writing and spelling. We can help children with the pre-requisite skills they need for reading and writing as well as the whole reading, writing and spelling process.
Communication, Speaking & Listening
Whether its difficulty pronouncing sounds, putting sentences together to tell a story or stuttering, we can help your child express themselves and be heard. We can also help children with listening so they can understand words, follow instructions and understand a story.

School age language difficulties
