Speech Therapy for Adults with Hearing Loss- Assessment

$220.00

As speech pathologists, we are qualified to deliver intervention and therapy for the improvement of speech pronunciation, social communication and strategies to increase intelligibility for adults with hearing loss. We assist adults with hearing loss to improve their communication success and participation.

Are you struggling to create pronunciation sounds clearly? Do you want to improve on the oral language skills you learned as a kid and feel like you can produce clearer speech in spite of hearing loss? Have you upgraded your hearing aids and heard that your sounds could be clearer?

This speech therapy assessment is the first step to addressing such concerns. Our speech pathologists will investigate your speech pronunciation, voice and social communication. Then we will create practical speech therapy targets alongside you to proactively address your communication precision, speech accuracy and vocal function and health for daily life in spite of hearing impairment. Our speech pathologists can also help you with social skills and tips to help with your social life, family life or even during every day activities in public.

This assessment session is suited to clients with hearing loss managed by hearing aids or cochlear implants. 

All sessions are delivered face to face in our Collins St clinic. You are welcome to bring an Auslan interpreter to initial assessment session and sessions thereafter. This is optional however.
