Meet Our Speech Pathologist Tahlia Owen
As a local ‘Medowian’, Tahlia is excited to support families and provide Speech Pathology services in her beloved Port Stephens area.
Being a Mum to a school-aged daughter, Tahlia recognises the important role that parents and families play in their child’s Speech Pathology journeys. She takes a collaborative approach to therapy and loves working with families so they can achieve functional goals that will truly make an impact in their lives.
Tahlia is also passionate about empowering parents to support their child’s communicative development outside of the clinic space. She believes that children learn best through play, and strives to create engaging sessions for all age groups.
Communication is such a fundamental element of our everyday life and I love being able to help and support my clients to grow their communicative confidence. I especially love building relationships with the families of my clients and sharing their Speech Pathology journeys and successes with them!
I also find that as a Speech Pathologist, we are trained in so many different areas of speech and language and work with a diverse population – no two days are ever the same.
I love working with my colleagues who radiate positivity and passion for Speech Pathology!
I also love that A Growing Understanding offers extended service hours for increased accessibility of appointments for working parents, and flexible appointment types (in-clinic, preschool/school visits, home visits, telehealth, groups, etc.).
The penguin game – Don’t Break the Ice!
The only books I read these days are children’s books (I’m more of a podcast girl) so Thelma the Unicorn!
The Great Gatsby.
“Everything happens for a reason”.
I named my daughter after an Australian beach!
