Speech Language Therapy Clinic
The Speech Language Therapy Clinic at Massey University’s Auckland campus in Albany provides services for a variety of communication and swallowing disorders in children and adults.
Student clinicians assess and treat clients under the supervision of highly qualified and experienced clinical staff.
Current evidence-based clinical practice underpins assessment and treatment of communication associated with:
- disorders or developmental delays in children’s speech and language
- hearing loss
- head injury
- physical disability
- Parkinson’s disease, dementia or other neurological problems
- fluency or stuttering difficulties
- voice problems
- swallowing difficulties.
Based on the outcome of the evaluation, treatment programmes are discussed and implemented when appropriate.
ACTIVEating Clinic (Advancing Children Therapeutically in Variety Eating)

Others in addition to oral aversion may experience negative sensory and behavioural responses at mealtimes. For more information on our programme please see our information sheet.
