Financial Assistance

At Speech Pathology Tasmania we aim to provide you with a professional service that will first and foremost address your speech therapy needs. However, in today’s economic climate, we recognise that many of our families are limited by a tight budget. As such we will try to assist you to achieve your goals with a program which also respects and takes account of your financial needs.

In order to reduce the costs involved with treatment plans we can discuss options for frequency and length of therapy sessions, and other options such as a home or school programs where appropriate. Please discuss the viability of these options with your treating therapist.

There are also a variety of rebates and allowances which exist to assist clients and families to reduce out-of-pocket costs associated with accessing therapy services. We have compiled some of this information for you. Please click on the relevant link below to view.

This information is intended as a guide only. Please understand that we are not agents for any of the organisations listed, nor are we able to assess eligibility, or to arrange funding for these rebates and allowances. If you have questions regarding your eligibility, please contact the organisation directly to discuss your personal circumstances with them. Alternatively, your GP may be able to offer further guidance.
