“Makayla has been going to Novita in Broken Hill for speech pathology with Kat and Caroline for a few years now.
Makayla has made amazing progress since she started speech pathology. At first, talking was challenging for her, and she had difficulty communicating. But now, her speech has improved a lot. She talks more clearly and uses new words!
Better speech has also helped Makayla with her writing. She’s working towards her dream of becoming a writer in the future!
Even our friends who haven’t seen Makayla in a while are surprised by how well she talks now.
Thanks to her improved speech, Makayla feels more confident connecting with others in the Broken Hill community. She even had a great time cooking at last year’s Christmas party at Novita with her peers.”
– Gloria, Makayla’s mum
“We’ve been using Novita’s services for my son Hayden in Broken Hill for nearly 6 years now. We’ve found them great, easy to work with, and their facilities are top-notch.
Novita has supported Hayden to achieve his goal of learning to ride a bike. From our initial consultation to the trial and fit up day, then the modifications and delivery were fantastic. Hayden still uses the bike today as it was designed to accommodate him as he grew older, and he loves riding it every day.
We love all the people involved at Novita. Their knowledge is just amazing, and we really appreciate how they go out of their way to support Hayden and our family. The staff are so patient and supportive, which has really allowed Hayden to build a strong bond with them.
One thing that really stands out is the staff retention in Broken Hill, Hayden has been able to have consistency in his support as the staff have not left regularly, which is a big change from what we’ve experienced prior to working with Novita.
Nowadays, Hayden is much more confident and ready to take on whatever life throws at him. We’re grateful for all the support from Novita.”
– Natalie, Hayden’s mum
