I was very fortunate to interview the director of Sound Waves Speech Pathology, Alison Evernden. Alison believes children learn best in naturalistic environments where their therapy goals can be strongly supported by their parents, families and teachers. Alison believes in a multidisciplinary approach to therapy and she collaborates closely with parents, teachers, educational staff, GPs, Paediatricians, Educational Psychologists and other health professionals to devise a client’s speech and language goals and to measure their progress. Alison Evernden is a fully accredited and experienced Speech and Language Pathologist. Graduating from the University of Sydney in 2000 with First Class Honours, Alison has over 20 years experience as a Speech Pathologist. She has worked extensively with children aged 18 months to 18 years, providing assessment, diagnosis and therapy for children with a diverse range of paediatric speech, language, communication, literacy and learning difficulties.

Like most businesses Alison has had to rethink how she provides her service.
