ABOUT Speech Central

Hi. I'm Melinda Dakin, speech language therapist and director at Speech Central.

In 2019, after relocating from Auckland, I started Speech Central to provide quality, private speech language therapy in the local Taupō community and across the Central Plateau. 

As a speech language therapist, I assist people of all ages with speech, language, communication and swallowing needs to achieve their goals. 

Whether you are looking for support with your child's communication, or therapy for yourself or a family member, I would love to help.

Contact me to find out how we can help or to arrange a speech language assessment.
