Speech Language Pathologist


The Speech Language Pathologist is available at Alexandra Hills State School by appointment. Students are also referred to the Speech Language Pathologist via the Student Provisions Committee (SPC). Speech pathologists work in a variety of ways including providing individual therapy, working in small groups, working within a classroom, becoming involved in home-based programs, providing resources and information, as well giving advice and direction to students, their carers and other professionals.

The Speech Language Pathologist can:

  • coordinate the management of students
  • work as part of a multi disciplinary team
  • consult with other agencies
  • provide workshops and support family members and other caregivers.

The role of speech pathologists is to advocate strongly for appropriate care and services for people with communication disabilities.
