Every child and family has unique needs; that’s why we take a personalised approach. Plumtree’s speech therapists in Inner West Sydney will tailor their sessions to suit your personal circumstances. 

Whether you opt for speech therapy in our centre in Marrickville, or in the comfort of your own home, within your neighbourhood, at a childcare centre, preschool, or school, we’ve got you covered.

Each session with one of Plumtree’s speech therapists is flexible, ensuring your goals are met. Sessions can be scheduled weekly, fortnightly, or you can organise shorter, more intensive blocks, depending on what works best for you and your child’s needs.

For children with an NDIS package, Plumtree offers a range of specialist supports through a range of different programs.


NDIS registered speech therapist

At Plumtree, we have NDIS registered speech therapists who work with children of all ages. Our therapists create packages that are tailored to suit the needs of each child and we will work with you to ensure the outcomes of your NDIS plan are achieved. 

Our staff have training in therapy, education, psychology and positive behaviour supports. They have also completed accredited Key Worker training. This means that they can easily switch roles from being your Therapist to being your Key Worker.

Our NDIS registered speech therapists will collaborate with you to formulate a plan that meets your child’s needs. At Plumtree, our distinctive NDIS speech therapy method involves breaking down your goals together to determine the initial steps. While professionals may come and go, families remain an ntegral aspect of a child’s life; so we consider this collaboration essential. 

Working together we’ll ensure the best use of your NDIS resources and help you and your child achieve your desired outcomes. Get in touch today to learn more about our speech therapists in Inner West Sydney.

Speech therapy programs

At Plumtree, we offer a range of tailored speech therapy programs with our NDIS registered speech therapists, as well as privately funded sessions. Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each client. 

AAC for communication support

Children communicate in various ways, not just through speech. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) encompasses methods like visuals, signs, iPads, and computer technologies to express thoughts and ideas. AAC can accelerate language and verbal skill development for some children. Inquire with your keyworker about incorporating AAC into your Plan & Do package for tailored support.

Hanen® for Language Delay

These evidence-based courses provide tailored support for children with language delays. Choose from three specialised programs: It Takes Two to Talk®, More Than Words®, and TalkAbility®. Each program offers individual consultations, weekly group sessions, and personalised feedback. 

For children with an NDIS package, Plumtree offers a range of specialist support through a range of different programs.

How Plumtree works in educational settings

Outside of our speech therapy centre in Marrickville, we collaborate with you and your child’s school or early childhood centre to ensure your child participates fully in all routines. We adjust the environment or resources as needed so that your child learns alongside their peers.

As the family, you hold the primary relationship with the school, and we support you as part of the team around your child. Our visits to schools or early childhood settings are 1.5 hours long, allowing us to maximise our time by sharing information and strategies with the staff. This ensures they can continue implementing these strategies during their daily routines when we are not there.


Working together with Plumtree

If you decide to appoint Plumtree as your service provider under the NDIA, together we will complete a Service Agreement. This agreement is relevant whether you are Plan-Managed, NDIA-Managed or Self-Managed. We both make agreements to each other to ensure you achieve the goals for your child.

Through comprehensive assessments, we identify specific difficulties and implement evidence-based practices to promote effective communication skills. We prioritise a family-centred approach, recognising the vital role that parents and caregivers play in their child’s development. 

Our therapists work closely with families to provide guidance and resources, empowering them to reinforce therapy techniques at home. Additionally, we collaborate with schools and other professionals involved in the child’s care to ensure a coordinated approach to therapy, maximising progress across various settings.

Our speech therapists in Inner West Sydney not only improve communication skills but also foster confidence and self-esteem in children. As they make progress in therapy, children gain confidence in their ability to communicate effectively, leading to greater participation in social activities and enhanced overall well-being. Our goal is to support children in reaching their full communication potential, enabling them to thrive in both academic and social settings.
