Paediatric Speech Pathologist
Occumax is all about connection. Sometimes children have difficulty forming or making the right connections between their brain and body and everyday things are hard or tricky for them to do. Life is hard work and emotionally draining for them, their parents, friends and teachers.
By connecting with our Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Social Worker, children and parents are able to get the right tools, techniques and intervention to point them in the right direction. To do that, our staff need to be connected to good support, supervision and training. Once children start to form better internal connections and overcome the participation problems they were experiencing, they are able to develop deeper and richer connections with their friends, family, and others beyond.
When we feel connected inside ourselves and to others in time and space, life is meaningful and fulfilling. So it is true that we really do discover happiness through connection. For 13 years Occumax has been helping children and families from Mackay and surrounding communities to discover happiness through connection.
We are known for really listening to parents and making a difference in their child's life. Occumax's strong values, coupled with the NDIS being in place for over 3 years, has led to the need to increase our staffing to meet existing community demands. To provide efficient and effective Speech Pathology intervention for children and their families, in accordance with the policies, procedures and strategic directions of Occumax.
