Bachelor of Applied Science (Speech Pathology), University of Sydney

 

Having grown up as the youngest amongst all his extended family, Harrison was the fortunate recipient of all the toys and attention. When he discovered that he could play all day as a paediatric speech pathologist, he was sold! Harrison enjoys finding creative ways to work on communication and feeding in fun and functional activities. He is passionate about working with the child’s family and other multi-disciplinary team members – through collaboration and evidence-based practice – to bring about meaningful change.

 

Harrison’s post-graduate experience has centred around working with children with disabilities and behaviours of concern within the non-profit sector.  He has also previously worked as an ABA therapist and has delivered behaviour support programs as part of a trans-disciplinary team.  Harrison has a special interest in working with children with complex communication needs, early language development, social skills, and fussy eating. He is committed to ongoing learning, and has completed additional training in AAC systems (such as LAMP and PODD), PROMPT for motor speech disorders, and Social Thinking. When not at work, you will most likely find him trying to chase the sunrise, play tennis, and rock-climbing – all with variable success.
