Let's Grow Together
It is normal to have a lot of questions about your child; whether they need therapy in the first place, how much will it cost, what does a speech pathologist do, what support is available, and the list goes on…
Check out our frequently asked questions to start your speech pathology journey with the right information.
We pride ourselves on offering our families accurate and reliable information. That is why we take the time to discuss the fees that will apply to the services appropriate for your child. When we meet with you and your child, and gain an understanding of your budget, we can provide a true indication of any ongoing costs, and discuss available support systems including The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

A Growing Understanding is such a lovely and inviting clinic. From Jordan at the front desk and her very welcoming smile and ‘congratulations on great work’ sticker/stamp at the end of the session, to the cute little waiting room where I can eat as much chocolate cake as I want and not worry about any added Kgs, to the treatment rooms that are inviting and always full of fun and engaging things to do. I can completely understand why my kids are always happy to attend therapy. Plus I feel comforted knowing that we are in no way receiving a generic approach to therapy but are instead receiving something that is tailored to my children’s needs and I have been able to have a part in every step. I would highly recommend them for your child’s speech therapy needs. After previously having worked with Lauren when my daughters deafness was diagnosed almost 6 years ago it was a huge relief to be able to start working with her again after our previous speech therapist relocated and have loved having the ability to work with her again for the past 9 months. My daughter Abbigail loves coming to speech therapy every fortnight and working towards her goals. She is constantly motivated by Lauren to participate in her in home practice and activities. Lauren is also a genius at making some very boring “drill” type work fun and inviting. Her expertise, diligence and genuine care/concern are the ideal combination in ensuring Abbigail’s continued progress and success. Another huge benefit has been Lauren’s flexibility with both in clinic appointments and school based appointments allowing a much clearer picture on where we need to prioritise Abbi’s goals, as well as provide feedback to the school by way of strategies and options to provide the best learning environment. I have also recently began session with Jackie for my 3 year old son Callan. Callan has almost instantly become possessive of the clinic due to loving his time there working with Jackie that he feels the need to tell his big sister it’s “His speech therapy!” and will often attempt to lock himself in the treatment room so he doesn’t have to go home when our time is up. In such a short space of time Jackie has built a beautiful relationship with Callan making sure to have things he’s interested in (dinosaurs and activities involving moving rather then sitting still) to hold his attention and has managed to keep him engaged much longer then I often can my self. Both Lauren and Jackie are always providing me with skills that I can implement at home to achieve a high success rate for our goals as well as constantly providing me with feedback so I know where we are in regards to the kids therapy and eliminating any guess work. As a family we are grateful to be in such good hands and look forward to continuing to work as a team to ensure many HIGH FIVES in Abbigail and Callan’s future. Amy.
I would highly recommend A Growing Understanding Speech Pathology. The level of care, expertise, and support we’ve received has been excellent. Lauren is a great speech pathologist and tailors all of the therapy to our exact needs – we’ve never had a ‘one size fits all approach’. Thank you!
