Speech pathology

Speech pathologists at Ballarat Community Health work closely with parents and carers to help support a child’s growth and development in all areas of communication and eating/feeding.

We also provide a paediatric speech pathology service for clients between the ages of 18 months and 18 years who present with a range of communication and eating/feeding difficulties.

Speech pathologists are able to assess and treat the following areas:

  • Speech – the production of speech sounds or how a child can be understood by others in conversation.
  • Language – the understanding of concepts, following directions, listening, telling stories, using words to communicate needs and wants.
  • Pragmatic language skills – the use of communication skills in social situations.
  • Fluency – otherwise known as stuttering or dysfluency.
  • Eating/feeding skills – children who present as picky eaters or problem feeders.

Speech pathology services are offered at the Ballarat Community Health Lucas site.
