If you’re wondering whether your child or an adult family member should be seeking help from a Speech Pathologist, then you’re not alone. This is one of the most commonly asked questions that clients want answered when they first get in touch with a Speech Pathologist.

In this special episode commemorating Speech Pathology Week. I sat down with experienced Speech Pathologists from the Darling Downs Speech Pathology Interagency Group answer this question and provide valuable information for people who:
• Have a child who is not yet talking;
• Have a child who is a picky eater or a problem feeder,
• Have a child with a hearing loss;
• Have a relative who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease;
• Have a relative who has experienced a stroke;
• Have a child who is experiencing reading or spelling difficulties;
• Have a stutter, stammer or dysfluency;
• Have a child whose speech is hard to understand.

Communication and eating skills are essential for maintaining a positive quality of life. Ensure your loved ones receive timely assistance so they can thrive and enjoy life to the fullest.
