Yes, speech pathology has taken out the top spot for 2016. Speech pathology also featured on our top 5 list earlier this year and has been a popular NDIS support throughout 2016. As our most search NDIS support of 2016 many of our community are no doubt familiar with Speech pathologists, or Speechies as they are often affectionately known.
According to Speech Pathology Australia, “Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language. People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely can also be helped by a speech pathologist.”.
