SPEECH PATHOLOGY SERVICE AUSTRALIA WIDE

NDIS

NDIS – National Disability Insurance Scheme

Loqui Speech Pathology is a registered NDIS provider. We offer mealtime and communication supports services to adults who are self-managed, plan managed or NDIA managed.

Loqui Speech Pathologists support people with neurological, developmental and acquired disabilities who have difficulties with speech, language, voice, social communication, eating, drinking and/or swallowing.

Our Speech Pathologists:
  • Empower individuals to communicate independently and feel confident to voice and express themselves
  • Provide supports to enhance communication interactions and engagement 

 

Mealtime Supports

Eating, chewing and drinking difficulties are also known as swallowing difficulties, or dysphagia. Swallowing difficulties can impact on a person’s day-to-day activities and their wellbeing.

The Loqui team can offer:

  • Mealtime assessments
  • Mealtime reviews
  • Support around modifying food and drinks to swallow more easily. We document in line with IDDSI – the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative
  • Easy to read mealtime support plans and reports
  • Recommend any specialised equipment and supports you may need e.g., cups, plates, cutlery, thickeners, positioning
  • Education and training to families, care staff and support workers around how to best support you at mealtimes
  • Mealtimes at home and in the community should be safe and enjoyable. If you would like to speak with our team about your swallowing difficulties, please contact us or complete the online NDIS referral form

Mealtimes at home and in the community should be safe and enjoyable. If you would like to speak with our team about your swallowing difficulties, please contact us or complete the online NDIS referral form.

If you have any signs of swallowing difficulties, you should make a referral to a speech pathologist to discuss your needs.

If you or someone you know is choking, please commence first aid, dial 000 as this is a medical emergency.

Communication

Communication difficulties can affect how someone understands information or how they get their message across to others. We communicate many ways. A person with a communication difficulty may have difficulties with social skills, listening, hearing, understanding, reading, speaking, writing and using their voice.

The Loqui team can help you reach your goals by offering:

  • A comprehensive communication assessment for:
    • Speech sounds
    • Language (how you use and understand words),
    • Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) – finding different ways to help you communicate with the use of assistive technology
    • Cognitive communication difficulties, and
    • Voice
  • An easy to read assessment report and recommendations
  • Training and education to staff and families on how to better support your communication
  • Recommend any specialised communication tools you may need
  • Assist you to work with your support network to get a quality service that is unique to you and your circumstances.

  • Self-managed
  • Plan-managed
  • Agency-managed
