New patients – start here


If you haven't made contact with us yet (and don't have an appointment), please contact our secretary on 4940 6515.

If you do have an appointment, below is an e-book which has all the information you need in regards to "what to bring" for your first appointment as well as other useful information about payment and policies. Please click below to view, download, print or save the eBook.

Before your appointment, our team will send you an intake form. This form includes background information that we need from you BEFORE we meet you and your child. If you haven't received the email and intake form, check your junk folder first and then contact our secretary on 4940 6515.


To keep it simple, our clinic is located in the Early Start Speech Pathology rooms in Wallsend.

The address for this is 1/61 Nelson Street, Wallsend.

There is 1-hour parking on the main street and unlimited parking on side streets. The Clinic is round the corner from the main Wallsend shopping centre. Look for Early Start Speech Pathology as you drive down Nelson Street, it’s near a dental practice and Kip McGrath offices. There will be a Let’s Eat Speech signboard out the front.

If you get lost - give the office a call on 4940 6515 or text Val directly on 0434 387 675 (she won't pick up the phone if she is in a session so try the office first).

If you can't make the appointment, we would really appreciate at least 48 hours notice as there are little babies waiting for urgent appointments and we need to give their parents as much notice as possible. Thanks for understanding! You can text Val directly (after hours) if you need to cancel your child's appointment - 0434 387 675.

See you in clinic soon 🙂
