TALK Speech Pathology began in 2000 with 4 colleagues and a vision for creating specialist children’s speech pathology services.
TALK’s speech pathologists specialise in working with children and their families. Talk understands that speech pathology for children is integral to developing communication, learning, social skills and confidence. TALK speech pathologists are members of Speech Pathology Australia and must update their training through completion of the Professional Self-Regulation Certificate each year. The TALK team is well equipped to help families navigate the needs of children who have been diagnosed with a variety of challenges, including;
Autism spectrum disorder, articulation difficulties, Developmental Language Disorder, dyslexia, specific oral and feeding difficulties, stuttering and language and learning delays.
TALK’s team of speech pathologists and administration staff are enthusiastic, professional and experienced in their work. Most importantly, our fundamental goal is to connect with families, and to improve the lives and opportunities of their children.
Talk Speech Pathology is committed to helping children in metropolitan Adelaide, as well as regional and rural areas within South Australia.
Talk currently provides services at the following clinic locations:
Marion (main office), Blackwood, Collinswood, Kingswood, Lockleys and O’Halloran Hill.
Regional: Fleurieu Peninsula and Upper South-East. Please call to make further enquires regarding other regional areas.
Talk Speech Pathologists also provide services to children and students in many pre-school and school sites across Adelaide.

Understanding Funding Options
The following Australian Government funding initiatives, and private health cover insurers, currently offer support for speech pathology intervention as follows:
• NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) – funding support for children and adults with a significant and permanent disability. Talk Speech Pathology is able to work with children who have “self-managed” or “plan-managed” funding.
• Chronic Disease Management Program – children of all ages with a chronic medical condition may be able to access Medicare rebates to cover allied health services that help manage their condition. This program is accessed via your GP.
• Private Health Insurance (extras cover). Speak with your insurer to check amounts rebated for speech pathology services as they can vary between funds.
Please call reception on 8358 1114 to discuss your eligibility options in more detail.
TALK can provide on-site (preschool or school) training and development sessions specifically tailored to meet the needs of your staff and/or parents.
