Our Speech Pathology team

At Community Therapy we have become a local healthcare leader due to the high clinical standards across our clinical and administration teams.

Having the skills and values that align with our mission and vision as an organisation is extremely important so we can ensure we’re delivering the best services to clients, as well as looking after and supporting one another as part of our #dreamteam.

Speech Pathology Team

Why we do what we do

We consider ourselves a high-performance team of like-minded individuals, with our mission being to support, enable, and empower our clients to live an enriched and meaningful life. This drives everything we do.

As part of our Speech Pathology Team you will be a key person in our experienced team of Speech Pathologists who work across the Central Coast, Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Port Stephens regions. Community Therapy strives to offer a professional, fun, engaging, meaningful and compassionate place to work where no two days are ever the same, and we love what we do.

What we do

Our Speech team sees clients in their homes or the property they’re living in. We can visit people living in all types of properties and living arrangements, from private homes, units, apartments, retirement villages, disability group homes and residential aged care facilities.

Our team LOVE working with adults of all ages to help them move towards the meaningful goals that they have set and would like to achieve. This covers a range of conditions such as developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language.

These clients may be funded privately or by home care packages, CHSP, DVA, CDM, Short Term Restorative Care, life time care and support, and the NDIS.

Our Speech Pathologists see a broad range of adults and older children who need assistance with things like speech and communication difficulties, as well as perform thorough assessments to assist with formal diagnoses of speech, language, literacy and swallowing issues.

We work hand in hand with our in-house dietetics team, as well as collaborate clinically and in terms of professional development with our other allied health professionals.
