Adult Speech Clarity Clinic
The Mater Health and Wellness Adult Speech Clarity Clinic specialises in assiting people, including those who speak English as a second language, to modify aspects of their speech to improve clarity. This will assist the individual to speak more clearly and to be more easily understood.
Poor speech clarity can result in communication breakdown - at home, in social settings and in the workplace. This can affect a person's wellbeing.
At the Adult Speech Clarity Clinic, experienced speech pathologists provide assessment, followed by individualised treatment to suit clients' needs.
With specialised treatment, clients are helped to:
- improve speech sound and pronounciation
- improve overall speech clarity
- reduce effects of a strong accent
- enhance communication skills.
Speech Clarity Treatment
Speech clarity treatment aims to enhance quality of life through:
- improved social interactions
- more effective communication in the workplace.
Referrals in the Mater Health and Wellness Adult Speech Clarity Clinic can be made for people with reduced speech intelligibility affecting their communication skills in English. We do not recommend referring individuals who are beginners in English, or who have significant language difficulties.
Self referrals are welcome.
