We have been enjoying Speech Pathology careers for almost 20 years after graduating in 2001. We share a common goal, focusing on what is working well for a client and your family to develop the most effective communicator possible. We want our client to be able to communicate with the people that matter to them, and the people that they need to connect with in their life. This might be anyone from their family, and friends to the staff at the corner shop or local library.
