This site is designed to provide informative, useful and general information to members of the public on a range of communication disorders. As each and every communication disorder is as individual as the child and family who experiences it, so are the intervention approaches by speech pathologists worldwide. As a result, this website is not intended as a substitute for personal care, assessment, diagnosis and treatment by a qualified speech pathologist. The information contained in this website is general, not client-specific and should never be interpreted as advice for a communication problem or learning difficulty experienced by an individual person. If after reading the contents of this website you suspect that your child or a child in your care has a communication impairment, it is recommended that you seek the services of a fully qualified local speech pathologist who can administer the correct formalised assessment tools to identify and diagnose the communication impairment and provide individualised recommendations for intervention based on the child’s unique needs.
