Few areas of development are as integral to a person’s wellbeing as the ability to communicate. Yet for many people with intellectual disabilities, brain injuries, hearing impairment, swallowing disorders and social anxiety, effective verbal communication can be a significant challenge. Unfortunately, for people with social difficulties and related conditions, the frustrations that stem from the inability to clearly and effectively communicate their needs and wishes can worsen behavioral issues, erode self-confidence and cause social isolation.
NDIS speech pathology (or ‘NDIS speech therapy’) is a specialised allied health discipline that diagnoses and treats communication disorders, which may manifest as difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding, reading, writing, social skills and appropriate use of voice. Depending on a person’s specific needs and challenges, NDIS speech pathology providers may devise exercises to overcome both physical and psychological causes of impaired communication (e.g. stuttering caused by anxiety). NDIS speech therapy providers also progressively teach new skills, such as effective listening, to enhance communication. For NDIS participants, NDIS speech pathology can transform all life areas, from play and social interaction to learning and academic performance, and enable more satisfying interaction with the world around them.
