Speech Therapy Harris Park
Our speech therapists and speech pathologists are committed to empowering children and families with communication skills which foster learning and encourage your child to join in on activities at home and within the community. We can help children with speech disorders such as stuttering or apraxia of speech, autism spectrum disorder, lisps, and assist with literacy development in childhood, expressive language disorders, and articulation disorders.
We believe that every child should have access to therapy regardless of where they live. Therefore, we offer therapy online as well as in our clinics in Rosehill Bella Vista, Oran Park and Kingswood. We also proudly offer our services to the surrounding suburbs of Western Sydney.
What is a Speech Pathologist?
Paediatric Speech Pathologists are qualified to provide speech therapy for children experiencing communication or speech difficulties. These disorders can affect language, communication, socialising, communicating, talking, listening, reading, writing, or even using your voice.
These difficulties could be due to developmental issues, brain injuries or intellectual disabilities, dementia, and other problems related to speech-language development.

Who will my child's speech therapist be?
We value your family and care about your child. You will see the same therapist every time you visit us at the clinic. This will allow your child and their family to become acquainted with the therapist that will be leading your child’s journey through communication. This also means the therapist will become familiar with how your child learns as their skills change and develop.
All of our therapists have a university degree at a minimum and are members of our professional body, Speech Pathology Australia. Our therapists have experience working with children of all ages with a range of communication needs, including: language, speech, reading, spelling, stuttering and social skills.
Our Therapists are required to continually update their skills. They must attend Professional Development Workshops to keep their skills current and provide Chatterbox family members with the best research-based therapy.
Speech Pathologists are specifically trained to evaluate and treat communication skills in children.
Don’t wait. Early intervention has been shown to improve the chances of children succeeding in school and at home. In general these difficulties do not just ‘go away’. These difficulties do not occur because your child is lazy. You may find they are starting to avoid situations where they have to talk, or will become frustrated when they have to do their homework.
It’s because it is hard for them. While a parent can’t cause their child these problems, a parent who provides the right advice and support can help her child achieve success.
