About us

Established in 1996, originally as Robyn Stephen & Associates Speech Pathology, Melbourne Child Development has grown to become a dynamic, multi-disciplinary Practice providing the highest quality of care for children and adolescents.

Our Practice philosophy has a strong family focus. Your knowledge of your child is combined with our thorough and skillful assessment to identify any underlying weaknesses in the foundation skills needed for successful development, communication and learning.

At Melbourne Child Development we are dedicated to helping you help your child reach their potential.

Our Vision
