Speech Therapy at Mouthworks
COMMUNICATION
We understand that communication skills are an important part of daily life, and our experienced Speech Therapists recognise that sometimes expressing our needs and wants or connecting with others can be difficult. Our team can help by assessing, trialling, and prescribing Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, or providing other means of therapy. AAC can encompass a variety of forms that match every unique and individual need.
SOCIAL SKILLS
Through individual therapy, we use a range of techniques such as role-playing and scripts to help children and adolescents improve their social skills. It is often the case that we just need to hear from a person of trust that how we sound when we speak is acceptable and normal. Our caring team can help build speech technique and improve self-confidence.
FLUENCY OR STUTTERING
Utilising a variety of techniques introduced by programs at Camperdown and Smooth Speech, our team works to improve speech fluency by using speech restructuring. These methods have been used effectively for many years to control stuttering and manage technique.
VOICE PROBLEMS
We provide therapy to treat vocal strain, nodules, and vocal fold paresis by improving speech quality and projection.
READING & WRITING
Our Speech Therapists diagnose and treat literacy difficulties using testing that is tailored to the person’s age, skill level, and individual needs. Some of the possible therapy avenues are: the use of rhyming words, improving phonemic awareness skills, reading comprehension, and decoding difficulties.

STROKE REHAB
Following the events of a stroke, you may have word finding difficulties, issues with pronounciation, or eating. Our experienced team can help with speech, swallowing, and other difficulties.
OROFACIAL MYOFUNCTIONAL ISSUES
If you or your children suffer from issues like immature swallowing or unusual tongue posture, our speech pathology team can provide therapy sessions that exercise and strengthen jaw muscles, retraining the tongue to stay back from the front of the mouth and teach you a new way to swallow and form speech sounds.
Saliva Management
Saliva is necessary for digestion and lubricates the throat to make swallowing easier. It also contains chemicals which help break down food. In the instance where the body produces too much saliva our speech pathology team can provide strategies to combat this.
CHEWING & SWALLOWING DIFFICULTY (DYSPHAGIA)
We offer assessments, recommendations and education on adult swallowing problems – including positioning, diet modification and communication. MouthWorks utilise a collaborative approach to your care which includes access to our team of qualified dieticians.
