How our speech pathologists can help
At hearservice, we are passionate about communication. Communication is central to our interactions with others and the world around us. Sometimes, however, our ability to communicate might affect our social participation, job prospects and personal wellbeing.
Speech pathologists at hearservice can help with communication, speech and language, and swallowing for any person aged 12 and older. Our speech pathology services are delivered by certified practicing speech pathologists. All programs are supported by evidence-based research and are fully integrated with other Vicdeaf services.
We respect the language preferences and cultural needs of all clients. If you are hard of hearing or Deaf, and developing your communication is important, our speech pathologists can help.
