bluestonesSpeech Pathology Services

A Speech Pathologist is concerned with the communication process; being able to express what we need, and being able to receive the communication of others.

Speech Pathologists traditionally work at a micro level, addressing skills such as sound production (articulation), fluency, word building, sentence structure, and comprehension of word and sentence meaning. They also focus on how adequately a person can convey their meanings in a coherent form (a narrative), and with appropriate volume, pitch and rate.

Speech Pathologists also address the ability of a person to participate and use their language at a social conversational level, how they use their body language, and facial expressions, how they initiate or maintain conversation, and how they question and respond to questioning.

Shivawn’s unique blend of Speech Pathology and Counselling, enables her to work at the macro level of communication. She is more concerned with what is breaking down at a deeper level that hinders a person in their relationships with others in their life.

We do not communicate in a void; it is a dynamic between two or more people. Communication happens in relationship, and there is more to this process than the way the words come out of our mouths. We each have an enormous history of experiences that impact on what we communicate and how we receive the communication. We can teach someone to understand words and sentences, but are they able to truly listen?
