About Us


Our vision is to deliver evidence based and individualised programs, tailored to meet every need. Sydney Therapy & Co work collaboratively with our clients, specialists and teaching professionals to achieve success in therapy as well as in the classroom, university, workplace – and in everyday life.

Why a Speech Pathologist?
As speech language pathologists, we work with children, young people and adults to meet their speech, language, voice, social and fluency goals. This may include therapy that targets:

  • using clear speech sounds
  • following directions and concepts to understand others in the daily environment
  • using appropriate vocabulary to express thoughts, feelings and ideas
  • managing social skills for better interaction with peers, and in the community
  • use of family based stuttering therapy to manage fluency
  • improved literacy skills for reading, writing and spelling
  • improved skills in written expression for all stages of development and for use at all levels of school, university and in professional and daily communication settings
  • accessing learning support in the given environment by working closely with schools, specialists, educators carers and other professionals
  • building life skills in planning, organisation, time management, monitoring, self control and working memory.
  • improving voice quality, strength and endurance for professional voice users
  • cognitive communication skills after traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury

The ability to communicate effectively is often taken for granted but is essential in all aspects of everyday life.
