“Because every child deserves the right to communicate”

Lovely Lara has been with the Early Start team since early 2016. Lara loves to make children laugh and keep them interested in coming to speech pathology, some don’t even want to leave. Lara has a way to get the best out of her clients and the thoughts shared by the children never cease to amaze her or make her laugh.

Lara is a Newcastle University graduate and a Hanen trained speech pathologist. Lara has a special interest in school aged language, running our SPOT groups  with our OT friends, and developing language and speech skills of pre-schoolers. Lara has assisted Early Start with preschool screeners and presentations to local schools and preschools on speech and language development.

Lara has recently married and is now known as Lara Humphries (nee Diccico). Lara and her husband have recently built the house of their dreams and we love hearing how proud her husband is of his newly manicured lawn or the new outdoor setting Lara is saving for. Such oldies we are now!
