Who is KP Speech Pathology?

KP Speech Pathology is a team of experienced Speech Pathologists owned and run by Kara Veldhuizen (formerly Postlethwaite).

Why is KP Speech Pathology unique?

KP Speech Pathology is unique in that it is not run from a clinic setting. Therapists travel to clients and provide services in their preferred setting whether it be at home, kindergarten, school, early learning center or grandma’s house. This ensures that the child is comfortable and can spend less time having to adapt to a new environment and can focus on achieving their goals faster.

KPSP also offer kindergarten screening programs throughout the year and intensive literacy programs during the school holidays.

Still a little unsure?

If you are unsure if you need a Speech Pathologist, Kara is always happy to chat to you about your child and current situation. She is very passionate about her job and always ready to guide you and your child down the path that’s right for you.
