Welcome To Lotus Speech PATHOLOGY

We’re here to help children bloom by giving them the skills and confidence to express themselves. 

How Lotus works

We are a telehealth-only provider of speech pathology services.

Lotus Speech Pathology provides general speech therapy and trauma-informed speech pathology services to children across Australia. 

Children learn through play. We keep your child engaged and working towards their goals by infusing a sense of fun into every session. 

Our telehealth speech pathology services:

At Lotus Speech Pathology, every child is treated with empathy and kindness. 

With your permission, we can work in collaboration with any other professionals involved in your child’s care. If your child attends school, we can also liaise with teachers to ensure your child receives consistent instruction and encouragement.

What do we do?

We build your child’s confidence, communication skills and connections through engaging and interactive online speech therapy sessions.

Speech Pathology Services

We use a range of physical and digital resources to help babies, toddlers, children, and teens to communicate more clearly and confidently. Our telehealth service gives you the convenience of virtual care with the quality of a face-to-face session.

Trauma-informed speech pathology

Communication struggles are often part of a bigger picture. We support children who are receiving child protection services, have histories of trauma, or who experience mental health challenges. Our goal is to help such children develop their communication skills and contribute to improving their overall well-being.

Why telehealth?

Good care should not depend on where you live – and yet, so often, it does. Children in regional parts of the country are considerably more vulnerable to communication delays and disorders due to a lack of services and other contextual factors (Jones et. al., 2018).

Our goal is to make speech pathology services accessible to a wider range of clients, especially to children who live in rural or remote areas. We are proud to offer our telehealth therapy services nationwide.

Telehealth fits into family life more easily. You don’t have to battle the traffic to get to an appointment – you just open your computer. 

If your child thrives on routine and familiarity, they’re likely to feel most comfortable at home in their own space. They can even use their own toys as part of their therapy. 

Babies and toddlers are not forced to sit still in front of the computer for the whole session. At that age, a great deal of each session is really spent helping you, as the parent, learn techniques to improve your child’s communication. That’s true of both face-to-face sessions and telehealth ones.

Telehealth allows children to build up skills in a familiar environment and work towards practical goals that are meaningful to their daily life. They can put their skills straight to use.
