Meet Our Speech Pathologist Emma Hyde
Emma was born and bred in Newcastle and has been working as a speech pathologist for over 15 years. Having worked in a range of settings, including community health, hospitals and schools, Emma holds valuable experience.
She has worked in senior leadership and management roles in health and as a clinical educator for the University of Newcastle Speech Pathology Program.
With a daughter of her own, Emma is passionate about developing children’s communication and feeding skills and always strives to ensure that sessions cater to each individual child and that they are fun!
She enjoys working closely with families to support them throughout their journey and is dedicated to working with children to help them achieve their goals.
As the Clinical Director at A Growing Understanding, Emma ensures the ongoing delivery of evidence-based services and quality care. In this role she also supports the team and helps them to feel empowered and confident when it comes to working with each other and families.
I love nothing more than working with children and their families to achieve their goals, knowing the wonderful impact this can have on their lives.
My favourite moment in sessions I liken to when a bride walks down the aisle and you have a sneaky look at the groom’s face. When a child achieves a goal in sessions, I always look at the parent. It’s the moment that always reminds me why I love my job so much! I’ve shared many a happy and proud teary-eyed moments!
I love working for a company that strives to provide a high quality service for clients and their families and whose morals and values align with my own. The team is incredibly supportive and their friendly nature and smiling, happy faces make it a pleasure coming to work!
