Welcome to Smart Speech Therapy

Each of our clients has the potential to reach their own level of ‘smarts’. There are many areas of smarts including speech smarts, social smarts, understanding smarts, literacy smarts, fluency smarts and more!

Our goal is to support them to reach their ultimate smarts level in their individual areas of need. By strengthening their smarts, individuals are able to communicate effectively and as a result, create more meaningful connections with others which builds their self-esteem and ability to achieve their fullest potential.

With almost 10 years of experience, Jessica Singer is the Principal Speech Therapist who leads a highly skilled team based in Edgecliff, NSW.

Our Services

Assessments

We offer comprehensive, age-appropriate assessments which is an important first step in understanding your child’s current ability, strengths, needs and goals. This may also involve school observations to provide a holistic approach to your child’s development. We will provide a written report including the child’s results, strategies and intervention recommendations.

Therapy

Therapy sessions are tailored to your child’s needs and may include play-based games or activities aligned with their interests. We work collaboratively with families and teachers and provide strategies to practice at home and/or school. Sessions are usually 45 minutes in length and offered weekly.

Social Interaction

We offer social interaction groups for preschool and school age students, adolescents and young adults. Participants are placed in a group that matches their age and abilities, irrespective of whether or not they have a diagnosis such as ADHD or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Workshops

Our workshops are designed for teachers and educators to support social interaction skills in the classroom. We present evidence-based strategies and concepts to help manage challenging behaviours and those who struggle with emotional regulation. General social skills like having conversations, joining in and initiating and maintaining friendships are also covered.

Screenings

Our cost-effective and efficient screening program is available both in preschool and school settings. This allows parents to determine whether their child could benefit from speech therapy. Conducting screenings in preschools or classrooms ensures a comfortable environment for children, allowing us to collaborate with educators and teachers to gather valuable insights.

If this sounds like your child or a child you are teaching, treating or caring for, then don't "wait and see". Contact us and let us assist.

Why SMART?

Specialised

As fully qualified speech therapists and members of Speech Pathology Australia, we are specialised in supporting individuals with communication difficulties to the best of our ability. As a team, we have several areas of special interest such as social skills, early intervention, selective mutism, literacy, speech sound disorders and more!

Memorable

Our therapy sessions are memorable in that they are dynamic, engaging and of high quality. We love how we also become a memory in people’s lives as they think back to their individual communication journeys and how we helped to facilitate the successful lives that they now lead.

A

Adaptable

As experienced therapists, we understand that all individuals are different and have varying needs during assessment and therapy. We adapt our sessions to enable those with challenging behaviours, high anxiety or any other challenges to not only participate but gain something along the way.

R

Relatable

We understand how busy your lives get and don’t want to add any work or pressure to that, so we make sure to relate strategies, techniques and homework to your everyday lives. This makes it easy to apply these follow-up tasks in between sessions when you’re on the go and during regular routines.
