MCM is currently recruiting a number of Speech Therapist roles. With more than 1.2 million Australians living with a communication disability, Speech Pathologists/Therapists play an important role in supporting people who have a communication disability.
Here at MCM, we’re changing lives every day – it’s our bread and butter. In short, a career with us means that you’re part of an organisation making a real difference.
If you want to be part of an innovative, progressive and equal opportunity team in a highly supportive working environment, then look no further!
Many people have a very narrow idea of what a speech pathologist does. At MCM’s Early Childhood Intervention Services, we have a wonderful team of speech pathologists. Our Speech Pathologists work with families to help children confidently say what they want to say, when they want to say it and how they want to say it. Here are some of the things our Early Childhood Intervention Speech Pathologists do:
I love that I get to work with children and families, to support them to develop the confidence to go out into the world and make their voice heard. The world needs to listen to their voices.
Every day is very different, as every client and interaction is unique. A normal day might involve a variety of sessions with clients and families, this could be therapy sessions at their home, kinder/school, at a local park, or as COVID-19 has shown us, via telehealth!
We support families to be self-advocates, so they can get the necessary support their child needs to participate inclusively at kinder, school and in the wider community.
Communicating with confidence - that gets to the heart of the work we do. It’s how we connect with each other, develop relationships and engage with the world. Every child has the right to say what they want to say, when they want to say it, and how they want to say it.
