Children’s disability service Muddy Puddles is excited to announce they have a speech and language therapist working with them. Alex Kelly is an experienced speech pathologist who has worked on the South Coast for over 15 years; 11 years running the Speech Pathology department at Milton Ulladulla Hospital and 4 years as a private therapist, assisting adults and children with a wide variety of communication and swallowing difficulties.
Alex now works from the Muddy Puddles centre in Batemans Bay on Wednesdays and Fridays, providing speech and language therapy to children with a disability or developmental delay. Mr Kelly, who also works privately and in schools, says he is “delighted to be partnering with Muddy Puddles to extend his reach and make a difference in the lives of children with a disability and their families”.
Cate McMath, CEO of Muddy Puddles, says “speech and language therapy is in high demand in the Eurobodalla Shire. Alex has only been working with Muddy Puddles for a few weeks and he has been booked solid”. Muddy Puddles is a not-for-profit organisation providing education and therapy services to children and teens with a disability or developmental delay in the Eurobodalla. Ms McMath says “Muddy Puddles relies on grants, donations and fundraising to provide programs and services to families. We currently have access to funds to provide free speech and language therapy to children who may be eligible for the NDIS but have not received a package yet and have no other funding for speech services”.
