We want parents to be informed about, and engaged in, what we do when we work with their child.
Research – and clinical experience – tells us that parents want to work with a speech pathologist who is:
- right for them; and
- right for their child.
This means we must impose high standards on ourselves, our team, and our professional colleagues.
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve our services, we looked at peer-reviewed research and client feedback. It highlighted 30 key themes for us to think about when:
- selecting and training our speech pathologists; and
- improving our services.
