Speech Pathology - Community

Community Speech Pathology is provided in Southern Tasmania through the Swallowing Nutrition and Communication Services (SNACS) team. The team offers assessment and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders for adults living in Southern Tasmania. Education is also provided to clients, support people and community members on an individual basis or through regular courses on topics such as Supporting Communication and Texture Modified Diets.
