I have many years of experience working with adults in rehabilitation hospitals, and have a particular interest in neuro-rehabilitation, for example stroke, Parkinson’s, and Motor Neurone Disease, and head and neck cancer.

Speech pathology students

Wollongong Speech Pathology takes university students on clinical placement. We do this because we believe it benefits students, our team, and most importantly our clients. You might like to go to our Speech Pathology students page, where you can “meet” some of the amazing students who have worked with us over the years! Here are some of the reasons we host speech pathology students.

  • Can reduce therapy costs

  • A chance to “give back”

  • Prepare future speech pathologists to work with adults with communication and swallowing problems in the community
