Why Is Speech Pathology Important?

The early years of life lay the foundation for development. If a child is experiencing difficulties with communication, it can have flow on effects through school and into adulthood. Difficulties with understanding and being understood can lead to challenges keeping up in the classroom, maintaining friendships, enjoying books, and being involved in the community. Early intervention through Speech Pathology can help your child become a confident communicator.

Optimum Speech Pathologists are able to help individuals to achieve their potential both socially and academically, allowing them to thrive during school and through the rest of their lives.

Adult Speech Pathology

Difficulties with communication can impact our ability to maintain relationships, express ourselves and be involved in our community. A swallowing disorder can make it difficult to maintain adequate nutrition and hydration, and can affect our ability to take medication. Meal times are a very social part of our lives, and anxiety because of a swallowing disorder can be isolating.

Adults can experience communication and swallowing changes for many reasons, including stroke, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. A speech pathologist can work with you to help manage these difficulties to maintain your quality of life.
