The Speech Wave
Speech & Language Pathology Private Practice
Assessment and Therapy SLP services are offered for children or adults with difficulties experienced in the areas of communication, speech, language, voice, stuttering and swallowing. Currently assessment and therapy/treatment is offered through home visits or school visits only, except for the Hanen “It Takes Two to Talk” Early Language Intervention programme which involves both home visits and clinic sessions.
The Speech Wave is currently offering the Hanen "It Takes Two to Talk" Early Language Intervention Programme in Lennox Head, NSW. This is an evidenced-based therapy course designed for parents of children with significant language delays. The course aims to instil parents with SLP communication strategies to maximise language development through parent-child interaction opportunities in play and daily routines. This is a 10 week course involving 8 group teaching sessions and 4 individual video taping / video feedback sessions (including video baseline/assessment session). For more information on this specific therapy programme contact The Speech Wave. For general information on the course visit the official Hanen website http://www.hanen.org/Programs/For-Parents.aspx.
