A Growing Understanding Speech Pathology has been recognised for our individualised service and passionate approach at the 2018 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards.

We were honoured to be recognised amongst other outstanding business when we were announced the winners of the Start Up Superstar award at the recent awards ceremony, held at Belmont 16s.

A Growing Understanding Speech Pathology has always been about supporting and helping children develop essential skills. It is truly uplifting to know our work is not only making a difference to the families we help every day, but that we are contributing to the Lake Macquarie business community as a valuable start up.

I have always believed that a child’s growth is founded in understanding – Their understanding of the world in which they live. Our understanding, as parents, educators and speech pathologists, of their abilities, their needs and how they relate to the world around them.

It is this belief that drove me to establish A Growing Understanding Speech Pathology where emphasis is placed on education and coaching to ensure families learn lifelong communication skills and build confidence.

When the practice opened in 2016, I was the sole clinician with minimal appointments each week. This wonderful award has reminded me of the growth we have achieved in just two years. Within that time the practice has grown significantly, thanks to the support of the wonderful families we work with every day. I am honoured to continue on our path with passionate professionals like Melissa and Jess, and we can’t wait to share our expertise and skills with Port Stephens families when we open our new practice in Williamtown in August.

The passion for what we do and how we help families grows every day, and as a winning start up business, we are always on the lookout for new ways to support our industry and ensure the continued delivery of quality, evidence based care.

 

🐰HAPPY EASTER 🐣 😂 Friday Funny!! 😂

Did you know that 76 percent of people eat the ears on a chocolate bunny first? 5 percent go for the feet and 4 percent start on the tail!

Wherever you start, we hope you end with a chocolate-filled, relaxing and happy Easter with your friends and families.

🌳👨‍✈️👨‍🚒👨‍🍳 An amazing 25 happy children joined us for ‘Stories Under the Tree’ this morning! With so many bubbly, inquisitive kiddies today, we took the opportunity to discuss the stories in more detail - we used the pictures to make predictions about the story, discussed who/what/when/where and why questions relating to the plot and related our own personal experiences to the stories. These are all simple ways that you can enrich shared book experiences with your child to further nurture their language development.
Join us next month on Wednesday, 8th May for our next gathering for ‘Stories Under the Tree’ - I think I’ll need to bring an extra picnic rug! ~Melissa :-)
