2017 In A Nutshell

2017 has been an extremely busy year for everyone at KZ Speech. For the first time in our history we have needed to recommend other service providers to new referrals as we were full. Those that know our Practice Manager would know that he was mortified at this having to do this. With an ever increasing client base we have always attempted to provide the best support possible. The year has also seen KZ Speech Therapists, Therapy Assistants and Administration Staff increase to over 30.

We have never really acknowledged past Therapists and Therapy Assistants. The past year has seen over ten Therapists and Therapy Assistants move onto the next chapter of their lives. All are missed and each one of them has contributed to the lives of the many clients that they were supporting in Perth and in Regional Western Australia. Most had worked as therapy assistants while studying then worked with us as new graduates. We sincerely thank them for their contributions and amazing skills and energy.


With 2017 drawing to a close KZ Speech would like to thank all of our clients that entrust and believe in the therapy that we do. We truly appreciate the support that all of the little through to big clients, parents, grandparents and support people provide to us on a daily basis.


Thank you. We hope you have a Bonza 2018!
