A 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, Maitland, and the Hunter Region.
With extensive 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 a team of professional speech pathologists. With a combined passion for children’s communication and education, our Speech Pathologists are committed to providing professional speech pathology assessments, interventions and therapy. We work with children to discover their interests and strengths, and use these findings to develop individualised programs and therapies suitable for each child and their family.
