Our clients learn by participating in intervention that is fun, creative and engaging. We use toys, books, songs, crafts and games in order to motivate each one of our clients to reach their speech, language and communication targets. Someone watching one of our sessions may think that the child and the clinician are just playing when in fact they are working towards reaching their therapy goals.
A Company is Born
Melanie Hamilton established Hamilton Speech Services in 2009. As the eldest sibling of a brother with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Melanie recognized the need to provide families with affordable speech and language intervention. "I accompanied my brother to government funded speech and language therapy sessions as a teenager and watched him make huge gains. Unfortunately though when his therapy blocks were finished, my parents could not afford private speech therapy from a speech pathologist. After attending university and earning my Bachelor of Arts in Speech and Language Sciences and then my Certificate of Communicative Disorders Assistants (CDA) I worked for a few years and then opened my own business. Being a CDA allows me to charge less than what a Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP) charges which makes private therapy more affordable and more attainable to the majority of people who seek it out."
