Karen Ip Speech and Language Clinic was providing speech therapy services in Canberra and surrounding regions (e.g. Queanbeyan) since March 2010. In recent years, more children with feeding difficulties have come to us. Therefore, we have decided to update our practice name to Karen Ip Speech and Feeding Clinic in 2021.
We have a special interest in providing speech pathology assessments and treatments to babies, toddlers, preschoolers and early primary school students (aged 0-5) with communication and feeding difficulties including:
early feeding difficulties (e.g. food refusal, fussy eaters, difficulty transitioning to lumpy foods)
speech sound disorders (e.g. lisps, missing consonants within words (e.g. a 5 year old child saying 'poon' for 'spoon'))
language delays (e.g. a 2 year old child who uses less than 10 words)
difficulties in emergent literacy (e.g. the ability to recognise that the word 'sun' starts with 'sssssssss')
social communication difficulties
children with a disability (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down's Syndrome)
children with global developmental delays
We also provide workshops and training to other professionals including educators at early childhood centres, preschool teachers and teachers at primary schools.
