"Speech therapy"

About: Geraldton Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

My child and I have been attending speech therapy (and occasionally occupational therapy) sessions for the last 5 years roughly. Today we were signed off saying we are age appropriate now.

Our experience in these years have been nothing but full of support, advice, encouragement, these girls had the most loving/caring attitude for the patients (kids).

Over the years we've had quite a few girls, I hate that I cannot remember everyone's names (5 years worth of fabulous ladies is a bit much to remember) even though they were all amazing and caring (and patient - especially when my child wasn't interested in doing speech on some days! ! )

The last 2 years we've had a great connection with Olivia and Kate. They went above and beyond in my opinion to help us. Was amazing! All the girls were beautiful. Joan always welcomed us with a warm and bubbly attitude, always asked how my child went and showed interest when my child was telling her a story.

I can't talk highly enough about these girls.

Although it was years ago, my child did have a hearing test or two and the lady was so great. And the allied health staff when helping me make the application for both children actually, were beautiful and kind.

Amazing staff Geraldton Regional!
