Alpha’s Speech Therapists help improve their client’s spoken communication, understanding of language and feeding through comprehensive assessment and targeted therapy. We understand that communication is a vital aspect of life, and difficulties with speech can have a significant impact on daily activities and social interactions. That’s why we offer mobile speech therapy services to our clients, so they can receive therapy in the comfort of their own homes.
Our Alpha Speech Pathologists assist adult clients presenting with a range of conditions and injuries such as stroke, brain injury, cognitive decline, hearing loss and intellectual disabilities. Our passionate team works closely with their clients and support network to thoroughly assess the nature of the communication or swallowing difficulties and create individualised plans for their management.
We understand that every client has different needs and preferences, which is why we offer flexible appointment times to fit your schedule. Whether you need physiotherapy at home during the day, in the afternoon, or on the weekend, we can accommodate your needs.
One of the main benefits of our mobile physiotherapy services is that you don’t have to worry about transportation or mobility issues. Our physiotherapists will come to your home, saving you time and energy. Plus, you can receive treatment in a familiar and comfortable environment, which can help to speed up your recovery.
We break down the most common issue in accessing speech therapy services, which is travel and distance, by coming to your home. Mobile speech therapists offer a range of speech therapy services to support their clients with swallowing, speech, language, stuttering, voice and social communication difficulties in the comfort of their own home.
At Alpha Allied Health, we are committed to providing the best possible care for our clients. We understand that every client is unique and we take a personalised approach and tailor our services to each client’s specific needs and goals. We work collaboratively with families and support workers and adapt our treatments to our client’s needs. We ensure that our clients reach their personalised goals and have sufficient choice in their treatment.
Absolutely! Speech therapy is much more than talking. The role of a speech therapist is diverse; we work on many aspects of communication, as well as feeding and swallowing. Communication includes articulation, fluency, language, social skills, cognition, literacy and hearing.
In adults, the more common impediments are swallowing/feeding issues, stuttering and loss of language and speech due to brain injury.
In children, the more common difficulties we treat are stuttering, delays with articulation, language, social communication and literacy. We work with children who have a range of disabilities including autism spectrum disorders.
Very few disorders will simply go away on their own. More often than not, speech therapy interventions are required to treat speech delays and disorders. The length of treatments can vary and depend on the type of disorder. Some difficulties can take a few months to resolve while others may require ongoing intervention for many years. Often home therapy activities are given to clients to follow up regularly between sessions to ensure the success of the program and intervention. Goals are reviewed regularly in collaboration with clients and their families/carers.
There is no difference between the two, the two terms are used interchangeably. In Australia, the terms speech pathologist, speech-language pathologist (SLP), speech therapist and ‘speechie’ for short are primarily used.
