NDIS Speech Pathology
Our NDIS speech pathologists (often called ‘speech therapists’) use various therapeutic supports to help you understand information and express yourself verbally, in writing or with alternative methods of communication.
Ignite Healthcare’s NDIS speech therapists assist children and adults to build their communication skills and confidence. These skills are crucial for developing relationships, making life choices, and participating successfully in society.
Our aim is to provide NDIS speech pathology support that results in improved communication, greater self-confidence, and positive outcomes in your life.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
Hearing loss or impairment
Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome
Developmental delays, intellectual disabilities

Stuttering, voice and speech sound disorders
We provide early intervention services for young children 0–7 years old via a family-centred, strengths-based approach that incorporates fun and play. We also care for older children, adolescents and adults who require speech therapy and communication skills development.
NDIS participants and private clients are welcome.
How We Work
Our NDIS speech pathologists will carefully evaluate your current capabilities to diagnose communication disorders and difficulties.
Assessing how you use your voice, speak, listen, understand, read, write and interact socially will help your NDIS speech therapist determine your potential to achieve your goals with the right communication supports.
Next, your qualified NDIS speech pathologist will provide individualised advice, treatment and support to you, your family members, support carers and other health practitioners.
Your speech pathologist may also recommend assistive technology aids, i.e., Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems, to enhance your communication abilities.
