Hannah Parker (nee Wright) has been with Early Start Speech Pathology since mid 2015. Hannah graduated from The University of Newcastle in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology. She then moved to Sydney where she worked in a busy Speech Pathology private practice on the North Shore. Whilst in Sydney Hannah gained significant experience and knowledge working with a diverse range of paediatric clients. It was here that she discovered her love of working with clients and families to identify and develop alternative ways of communicating. This as well as learning about new technologies and building meaningful relationships with her families continues to motivate Hannah in her Speech Pathology work at Early Start.
After moving back to Newcastle in 2015, Hannah has continued developing her skills across a wide range of Speech Pathology areas including Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), speech/phonology, language, stuttering, early language development, play skills, and literacy skills.
Hannah has been Hansen trained as well as being trained in early play skills, literacy development, speech sounds and phonology and language disorders. Hannah attended the Speech Pathology Australia conference in 2017 in order to further her development.
Hannah is working from the Warners Bay office on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
