The service is for preschool aged children who find it hard to:

  • Understand what is said to them;
  • Use signs, words and construct sentences;
  • Say words clearly;
  • Find the right words to express thoughts and feelings;
  • Understand rules for social interaction and conversation;
  • Speak fluently.
