Growing Understanding Speech Pathology was established by Lauren Haskins, a mother of two, who was looking to extend herself professionally and help build children’s confidence in communication. Lauren wanted to create a practice that was true to her experience, and provide individualised speech pathology services for children and their families within Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, and the Hunter Region.
With more than 13 years of experience as her foundation, Lauren’s vision of a professional and friendly practice that not only supported children, but parents, carers, and fellow clinicians as well, came to fruition.
Lauren is now supported by three clinicians; Melissa, Jess and Jackie. With a combined passion for children’s communication and education, the A Growing Understanding Speech Pathology team are committed to providing professional speech pathology assessments, interventions and therapy. Lauren, Melissa, Jess and Jackie work with children to discover their interests and strengths, and use their findings to develop individualised programs and therapies suitable for each child and their family.
