Welcome to our info site for doctors and health professionals.
As an allied health professional, we get questions from clients about other areas that are outside our scope of practice. E.g., The other day, we got a question "my son toe walks, is that normal?" We suggested to the parent to speak to their Occupational Therapist or Paediatrician about it to clarify.
We acknowledge that we have gaps in our understanding of some topics, and we think other practitioners may also face similar challenges.
The internet is a convoluted and busy place. There is so much information out there related to speech, language, literacy, tongue ties, dyspraxia, bilingualism, etc.
Let us try to sift the information for you and skill you up quickly in areas related to speech and language pathology. This will complement the site that many doctors already use: https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au
While this blog is not to answer all your questions about speech, language, bilingualism, literacy, feeding, social communication issues, it will hopefully give you a snapshot of the variety of questions you or your families may have that we may be able to answer.
If you have any topic that you would like us to discuss further, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help out.
