SMART Spot Speech Pathologists are committed to working in partnership with classroom teachers to develop the oral language competence of students and to facilitate the development of foundational literacy skills.

The ability to communicate effectively and demonstrate adequate speech, language and communication skills is a key foundation to learning and social skill development.

To develop these skills in a sustainable way for schools, our Speech Pathologists

Practice within the Response to Intervention framework. This framework integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximise student achievement.
