Future-proof your clinical skills

Speech pathologists make valuable contributions within schools, but an education setting can be very different to other community-based or more clinical practice. 

As a dual qualified speech pathologist and a mainstream teacher with qualifications in special education, Kathryn is in a unique position to provide support and training to speech pathologists who are working in schools. Additionally, Kathryn has extensive experience working with school-aged students with language-based learning difficulties, including acquired brain injury, genetic or chromosomal conditions and rare diseases. 

Kathryn provides clinical coaching to target your individual learning goals. The Literate Learner webinar series also provides practical, relevant and easy to access professional development for speech pathologists working in schools.  Sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date.
