About the Speech Pathologist role

 

The Speech Pathologist may directly lead supports as the Key Worker with the family, developing a holistic picture of the child and family and deliver routines-based interventions. The Key Worker also acts as a link between the family and the transdisciplinary team and coordinates consultative services from other team members through joint visits, consultation, and direct services as required, based on the individual needs of the child and family.

Functional outcomes and meaningful participation: Provide early childhood intervention and evidence-based therapy to support children and their families to assist their development, well-being and to participate in meaningful activities and routines in the home, education settings and community.

Capacity building: Enhance families and other key caregivers’ capabilities to support their children through experiences and opportunities that strengthen knowledge and skills, and to promote the use of interest-based learning opportunities with children.

Collaboration: Build strong, collaborative relationships with families and support informed decision making on interventions that fit into everyday routines and activities to help achieve family’s prioritised goals.

Creating Opportunities: Engage in a range of professional development activities to grow your capabilities and confidence, and in turn compliment outcomes for children and families.

Team approach: Participate in collaborative teamwork with other professionals (such as Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Early Childhood Teachers) to provide quality, comprehensive and holistic services.
