Helping Children in Schools

Therapy Matters provides on-site speech pathology services to a number of schools on the Gold Coast and Northern NSW. School based services are convenient for parents and allow close collaboration between the speech pathologist and classroom teacher. This service model ensures strategies and activities used in speech therapy are directly relevant to the child’s current needs in the classroom.

  • Silkwood School - Wednesdays
  • Somerset College - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
