Do I Need a Speech Pathologist?

A Paediatric Speech Pathologist deals with many different areas of communication including receptive and expressive language, articulation, fluency and literacy. Many parents are unsure if their child needs Speech Pathology, particularly with the younger children.

You may need a Speech-Language Pathologist if your two year old is not able to:

  • Use around 50 – 80 single words with some two word phrases (eg. ‘big cow’);
  • Follow simple two part instructions;
  • Be understood by an unfamiliar listener 70% of the time

If you are worried about your child’s language development we strongly suggest you seek help early as early intervention provides the best outcomes for your child.

You may need a Speech-Language Pathologist if your child is having difficulty with:

  • Constructing sentences with appropriate vocabulary and grammar
  • Understanding and following instruction
  • Clarity of speech (ability to be understood by an unfamiliar listener)
  • Fluency of speech
  • Acquiring literacy skills such as rhyme, breaking words down into sounds, identifying individual sounds in words, spelling and reading

If your child is school age and the classroom teacher or Kindy teacher has raised concerns about their language and literacy acquisition, we strongly suggest you seek help early.

You do not need a GP referral to see a Speech-Language Pathologist so you can book without a written referral.
