Becoming a centre of excellence is no easy feat, but it is something Telethon Speech & Hearing has worked towards for over 50 years.
“We are the only place in WA that provides education. therapy and audiology services all in one location.” Telethon Speech & Hearing Head of Marketing Belinda Leksas said.
“As a registered NDIS provider, Telethon Speech & Hearing can provide speech pathology. occupational therapy, psychology and audiology services.”
Depending on your child’s eligibility, parts or all of Telethon Speech & Hearing programs may be covered under the NDIS, including:
- Chatterbox. an early intervention program for children with a hearing loss.
- Talkabout. therapy components of the speech and language program only.
- Speech therapy.
- Occupational therapy.
“We welcome having a conversation with you about seeking access to the NDIS for your child – we have specific members of our team who can guide you through the process,” Ms Leksas said.
