As a Speech Pathologist at Yooralla, you will diagnose and treat communication and swallowing difficulties in children, adults or across the lifespan (dependent on the role).
A key element of the role is supporting people to overcome communication difficulties such as:
- challenges with speech (including support with Augmentative and Alternative Communication)
- understanding and/or using language
- social skills
- reading and writing, and
- using their voice.
Joining Yooralla’s Allied Services team means that you will be working with like-minded practitioners in a collegiate environment, using evidence-based practice.
If you have strong clinical skills, expertise in a minimum of one of the above relevant areas, and are keen to broaden your experience in supporting individuals with disability to meet their goals, access the community and increase their independence, we hope to receive your application.
