At Ivanhoe Speech Therapy we recognise that all children are unique. Therapy plans are designed around individual children and family needs, and our clinic space/playroom is large enough to cater for a wide range of activities. If your child prefers, speech therapy games will move away from traditional ‘table-top therapy’ and be designed around your child’s individual interests, such as imaginary play, arts and crafts, active play, dancing, music, lego etc.

The Clinic Playroom

The large clinic space/playroom has been designed to provide a child friendly, modern space that is calming, constructive and conducive to learning.

This includes refurbishment of the clinic room to cater for all learning styles, providing room to hop, jump, skip and dance, engage in imaginary play, or sit on the floor and enjoy craft, lego, or play games.

Children are encouraged to take the lead and choose the activities that engage them.

Medicare Rebates ($52.95) are available for children who hold a complex needs care plan. Up to five sessions can be claimed per calendar year. Your GP will need to provide a copy of this careplan which you can bring along to your appointment, or ask the GP clinic to email a copy to our clinic.


There is a standard fee for all 45-minute therapy sessions.

Initial assessment sessions are charged at a higher rate due to the time taken after the session to work through assessment results and determine your child’s areas of strength and areas that would benefit from some support.
