What is a Speech Pathologist (Speechie)?

Speech pathologists help children to communicate more clearly. If you are concerned about your child’s speech, the way they understand what you say, or the way they express themselves, then your child may benefit from seeing a Speech Pathologist.

What is an Occupational Therapist (OT)?

Paediatric occupational therapists help children participate in everyday activities by working with the child, their family and others in the child’s environment. Occupational therapists assist children to develop skills, achieve greater independence and support their participation in developmentally appropriate activities




We understand that your child is an individual

That’s why each child who attends Talking Matters is assessed and an individual program is developed to meet their specific needs. Therapists take your child’s strengths, challenges, personality and interests into account when planning intervention and when running sessions. With a focus on family involvement and education, our therapists will help you and your child set goals and learn tools to use at home.  Kids think therapy is fun, while parents know their child is learning.


We understand that your child deserves the best

That’s why all our team members regularly update their skills, are members of their professional body and participate in that organisation’s certification program. We aim to provide therapy that is evidence-based in order to offer the most effective treatment for your child’s needs.


We know that your child may have needs in a number of different areas

We are a multidisciplinary practice offering speech pathology and occupational therapy all in the one location. Our therapists are able to share knowledge and support each other to ensure we can offer the best possible service to children with complex needs.


We know that parents are busy people

That’s why we offer a range of options for therapy sessions including school based services, Saturday appointments, school holiday groups and intensives, and coordinated appointments for children who need therapy in more than one area. We have a friendly efficient administration team to take your calls and make booking an appointment easy. 


We know that your child wants fun and you want results

Our building provides calm spaces for focused learning. Engaging therapists and stimulating therapy activities hold your child’s attention as they have fun while learning.
