Speech Pathology Funding Guide
When embarking on your family’s speech pathology journey, there are so many decisions to make including choosing between a public or private service. While a public service may be a more affordable choice, choosing a private service gives you greater flexibility with the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘when’, ‘where’ and ‘how’ of speech therapy.
If you choose to go with a private speech pathology service, your next question will most likely be around funding and how your family can finance the therapy your child requires. We have put together this Speech Pathology Funding Guide to help you assess what is available and how you can finance the best way forward for your family.
