Welcome to the Speech House

Affordable Speech Therapy that won’t break the bank

The Speech House was created from a desire to help families who are financially stretched and need support for their children facing speech and literacy challenges.

We believe every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter their background or financial situation. But we noticed that many families were struggling to afford regular therapy for their children. That’s when we knew we had to do something to make a difference.

So, The Speech House was born.  A place where families can find affordable and accessible speech therapy services, without breaking the bank.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. How can such a service be affordable? Well, we’ve found a way to keep the costs down without compromising on the quality of care.  We’ve established allied health assistant roles, allowing them to work alongside our senior speech pathologists in creating even more accessible avenues for assistance.  By implementing innovative strategies we can ensure that every family can access the support they need.

So, if you find yourself struggling to afford regular therapy for your child, don’t worry. The Speech House is here for you.

Together, we can create a world where every child’s voice is heard, where every child has the opportunity to express themselves confidently, and where every family feels supported on their journey. Join us at The Speech House – a place where affordability meets excellence.  We can’t wait to meet you and be a part of your child’s incredible journey to success.

Who is the program for?

The Speech House is not for everyone.

Our Allied Health Assistants are often studying Speech Pathology however they are not yet qualified and we believe that they are not yet ready to work with those with severe challenges that impede participation.  Allied Health Assistants are at their best with those who can follow directions, sit and engage in games and activities.  Our Speech Pathologists are here to assess, design a program, monitor progress, make changes and teach new skills.  For those with difficulties with engagement and participation our Speech Pathologists are the most appropriate person to deliver services.

Speech and Literacy Difficulties: Our primary focus is those facing challenges related to speech and literacy, providing specialised support to enhance their communication skills.

You are Seeking Affordable Options: The Speech House is dedicated to assisting families experiencing financial constraints, ensuring that quality speech therapy remains accessible.

You are Committed to Following Structured Programs:  Our services thrive when clients are committed to following the structured programs designed by our experienced Speech Pathologists and Allied Health Assistants.

You are Eager to Support Growth:  If you are actively involved in and eager to support communication development, The Speech House is here to collaborate with you.

You Can Easily Engage with AHAs: Successful engagement with our programs requires you to work with Allied Health Assistants without presenting significant behavioural challenges.
