We are Passionate About Helping People With Therapy

We are a caring team of Speech-Language Therapists who provide speech therapy Wellington – wide. We enjoy working with children of all ages, as well as occasionally “putting away the toys” to support adults too. Our passion lies in making a significant difference in the community by giving everyone we work with the communication skills to support life in all its fullness.

Introducing Sarah Campbell, MSLT

Sarah received her Masters in Speech-Language Therapy Practice from the University of Auckland, as well as a Bachelor of Arts: Major in Linguistics, Minor in Japanese from Waikato University. Her Masters’ thesis gathered norms for children 5;6 to 5;11 years old for the Diagnostic Evaluation of Articulation and Phonology assessment – a system for measuring children’s speech development and gauging the point at which they may need specialist intervention.

Sarah proficiently supports a wide range of communication needs, with her experience being the most extensive around speech sound production, Auditory Processing Disorder, and issues related to language processing (an often mis-understood area). Sarah is a member of the New Zealand Speech Therapy Association and undergoes regular up-skilling, to ensure our clients receive the latest evidence-based treatment. She is proudly qualified in the following programmes, which she integrates into her therapeutic approach where suitable:
The Hanen: It Takes Two To Talk Program
The Hanen: More Than Words Program
The Hanen: Target Word Program
The Lidcombe Programme for Stuttering
The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)
With three young and active boys of her own, Sarah understands the needs of parents well and has a range of techniques and strategies to effectively implement therapy targets within the busy home-life. Sarah loves technology and uses this when working as a Speech-Language Therapist. She has been heavily involved with Toastmasters, from committee roles including Club President, to competing in and winning various speech and evaluation competitions.
