Speech Therapists (also known as 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 therapists 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 trained is specialist services such as PROMPT training (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 will involve meeting with your speech therapists and identifying strengths and difficulties. When speech therapy is necessary, an individual personalised speech therapy program will be constructed. Evidence-based speech 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 by your speech therapist.
“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 learning to impact the whole being, not just the area of focus, 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 Therapist at Peach Speech.
