Who will see you at our service?

A number of highly qualified and experienced Speech Pathologists work at the Townsville Speech Pathology Services rooms. You may find that you are directed to a particular person within the service who has more experience in the area in which you (or your child) experiences difficulty. For example, not all Speech Pathologists see children with cochlear implants or adults with complex swallowing difficulties. Having staff with specialist skills ensures that clients can be best serviced by a professional with specialist training.

All staff at our service have a minimum bachelors degree in Speech Pathology from a recognised university. In addition, Speech Pathologists can be a member of the Speech Pathology Association of Australia which further promotes training and support for Speech Pathologists working in both public and private sector
