How RISE can help:

Our Speech Therapists can directly help children develop these crucial skills. Speech Therapy addresses the functional skills that are required across different environments. While the actual ‘therapy’ occurs within the clinic, our Speech Therapy team works closely with parents, teachers and other care-givers to implement strategies to develop language and play skills in the home, child care, kindergarten and school environments.
