SPEECH PATHOLOGY & OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY
At Inner West Paediatrics, we believe that every child should have the chance to discover his or her abilities to participate successfully in every day activities and experiences. Our dedicated team of occupational therapists and speech pathologists work collaboratively to facilitate positive outcomes for children and families.
