Speech pathology, offered at our Thomastown clinic, addresses communication challenges stemming from various conditions, providing tailored interventions to enhance verbal expression and interaction across all facets of life.

Speech Pathology Thomastown

Effective communication is a cornerstone of an individual's well-being and quality of life. Yet, for many who contend with intellectual disabilities, brain injuries, auditory impairments, swallowing disorders, or social anxiety, achieving clear and coherent verbal expression can be daunting. These communication hurdles can intensify behavioral issues, erode self-confidence, and cultivate feelings of detachment and loneliness, especially in those with specific diagnoses or pronounced social challenges.

Speech pathology, a specialised discipline within the realm of allied health, seeks to diagnose and address these communication impediments. This includes difficulties in articulation, active listening, comprehension, reading, writing, navigating social scenarios, and maintaining appropriate voice modulation.

Speech pathology holds an esteemed position within paediatric care, recognising that communication is at the heart of human connection and understanding. For children, mastering the intricacies of speech and language is more than just learning to form words; it's about expressing emotions, sharing ideas, and engaging with the world around them. Early interventions in speech pathology can have transformative effects, addressing potential delays or disorders before they become more ingrained, and setting children on a path to confident communication.

For children with disabilities, the importance of paediatric speech pathology is accentuated. These children might face specific challenges related to their condition, be it articulation difficulties, fluency disorders, or comprehension issues. Paediatric speech pathologists bring expertise tailored to the nuanced needs of these young individuals, providing targeted interventions that empower them to communicate more effectively. Through speech pathology, every child, regardless of their unique challenges, is given a voice and the means to use it, enriching their interactions and enhancing their quality of life.

Our dedicated speech pathologists at our Thomastown clinic provide individualised treatments, drawing insights from patient history, feedback from friends, family, and other healthcare professionals. They craft interventions to address both the tangible and psychological dimensions of communication, such as alleviating stuttering exacerbated by anxiety. Moreover, they equip individuals with new skills, like refined listening techniques, to bolster their communication abilities. For beneficiaries of the NDIS, engaging with a speech pathologist can catalyse transformative changes across various life domains — from forging social connections and indulging in playful activities to scaling academic heights, facilitating richer and more meaningful interactions with the world around them.

Healthcare funding types

NDIS

If you’re living with a disability, you’re probably familiar with the challenges of accessing the help you need. Not only can the required frequency of therapy can make paying fees unaffordable, funding provisions and onerous application processes can further delay treatment. At Soaring Health, we recognize the importance of accessing the therapeutic services you need, when you need them. As a registered NDIS provider, Soaring Health’s practitioners treat eligible participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). What’s more, our community coordinator and customer service team are well-versed in NDIS requirements and can help you to fast-track access to appropriate treatment.

Medicare

When you suffer chronic pain and persistent medical conditions, it can be hard to keep up with healthcare costs. Financial worries may cause you to forgo treatment that would relieve debilitating symptoms and improve your level of functioning and quality of life. At Soaring Health, we believe in removing barriers to you receiving the treatment you need. In the case of chronic pain lasting six months or more, we can provide fully bulk-billed treatment for up to five visits per year under Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management plan or CDM (formerly called an EPC), so you can access the treatment services you need, when you need them, without being out of pocket.

T.A.C

Motor vehicle injuries can vary in severity from minor to life-changing. At Soaring Health, we strive to resolve all injuries caused by transport accidents and collisions. The services available to TAC clients at Soaring Health have been purposefully selected and tailored to address the physical, mental and emotional effects of injuries caused by road trauma. Part of our dedicated community division, this program of services is also designed to relieve the financial burden of your accident and ensure that you receive the treatment you need, when you need it, without out-of-pocket fees. You can access our services through the TAC as soon as you have a claim number, meaning you can dedicate your full focus to making an efficient and satisfying recovery.

My Aged Care

Many people associate the Australian government’s My Aged Care program purely with practical assistance with daily tasks and activities. But if you’re aged over 65, you may also be able to access Soaring Health services such as physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and home services fee-free through My Aged Care provisions, to enable you to maintain or regain capacities necessary for daily living, and relieve pain and conditions that may otherwise compromise your quality of life. Depending on your circumstances, you may ask your case manager to request these services as part of your support package.

WORKSAFE

Workplace accidents causing serious injury can be devastating. One minute you’re earning a reliable income. The next you’re plagued by uncertainty over when, or even whether, you’ll be able to return to work – not to mention navigating daily life with pain and physical limitations and facing out-of-pocket medical costs or delaying necessary treatment until your claims are processed. Part of the answer to how well you’ll recover depends on receiving the treatment you need, when you need it, and having a collaborative and integrated team of healthcare professionals who can work together to optimise your recovery and support your return to work and daily life.

D.V.A

Serving to protect one's country is a significant human act, but it can lead to lasting physical and mental challenges for veterans.

Eligible individuals can schedule an appointment by presenting their Veteran Card.
