Presenters:

The presenters of this workshop are Lauren and Eilis, speech pathologists from SPOT Paediatrics at Seacombe Gardens in South Australia.

Lauren joined the Adelaide community in 2014 following her relocation from the USA. Lauren obtained her Bachelors degree from Michigan State University followed by a Masters degree at The University of Vermont. Post university, Lauren completed her clinical fellowship in Seattle, Washington at a multidisciplinary practice specialising in the treatment of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. As a SPOT Paediatrics Director and Speech Therapist Lauren has a broad range of experience across a variety of ages and diagnoses. She’s passionate about tailoring treatment to fit each individual she works with in order to provide the best possible outcome for all.

As a SPOT Paediatrics director and Speech Therapist Eilis has extensive experience working with children of all skill levels and diverse needs. She has worked for DECD in metropolitan and regional positions, far north rural communities, a special school and private practice throughout South Australia. Eilis values the hard work and effort put in by teachers and feel that together teachers and speechies have a very important role to play in language learning and literacy. Eilis very much enjoys her role as a speech pathologist particularly when children and parents have that ‘lightbulb’ moment and something clicks!
