Emergency Information

Speech Pathology

  • Do you have a two-year-old child who isn’t talking?
  • Is your four-year-old child’s speech difficult to understand?
  • Do you regularly lose your voice?
  • Do you cough when you eat or drink?

Speech pathology at Benalla Health can help. We cater for preschool children and adults over the age of 18 years. Our staff are trained to assist people with difficulties producing speech sounds, stuttering, forming sentences, understanding spoken language, swallowing difficulties and voice disorders.

One in seven Australians have difficulty communicating. This impacts on their behaviour and self-esteem, and their ability to learn and socialise. 

Our speech pathology team is available to assist you and your family with any of the above issues.
