A Few Words About Peach Speech

about-1

Speech Pathologists are trained to assess and support individuals with communication difficulties, providing therapy for difficulties with speech, reading, writing and expressive or receptive language skills. All speech pathologists at Peach Speech have attained university degrees in speech pathology and are certified practicing members of Speech Pathology Australia. Many of our therapists are also PROMPT trained (PROMPT is a technique used to support speech production and stands for 'Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets').

Located in Coolbellup, Peach Speech Pathology is a professional clinic-based practice that is dedicated to providing high quality assessments and enjoyable, effective therapy to children, adolescents and adults.

 

Initial Appointments.
Initial appointments will involve identifying the client's strengths and difficulties and assessing whether they would benefit from therapy. When therapy is necessary, an individual personalised therapy program will be constructed. Evidence-based therapy goals will be incorporated into fun and functional activities, working collaboratively with families and educational support to help the client achieve their best. Parent/family information and support and materials for home practice will also be provided as appropriate.

"As an experienced clinician, I am passionate about providing research-based intervention in a positive and supportive learning environment. Using quality resources, I believe learning can be a fun and positive experience. I truly believe in the power of life long learning, and aim to help my clients to develop skills that will assist them to continue learning and achieving throughout their life." Jaimi-Lee Jefferies, Principal Speech Pathologist at Peach Speech.
