Tabitha McPhee


“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach them the way they learn”

Tabitha works at both Wallsend and Warners Bay sites of Early Start Speech Pathologist. Tabitha has worked in Sydney in a private practice, very similar to ours and with adult patients at Maitland Private hospital. Tabitha checks her phone daily during lunchtime to check on her fur babies, as she has a live video feed! Her puppies are her world and she makes us laugh with showing us her antics that they get up to when Mummy’s not home.

Tabitha has developed a real interest in working with our teenage owls and discussing social language. She loves working with the littlies and their families and helping them start their communicative journey. Tabitha’s clients are bounding out of the session, beaming with their achievements that they are making in a short time with her. Parents often tell us how well their owls have coped with seeing Tabitha for therapy and how well Tabitha gets to know them and their interests.

Tabitha has recently started seeing adults in her caseload and is the speech pathologist you meet when having swallowing difficulties, voice concerns and need recovery post stroke or head injury.

Tabitha is a dedicated Speech Pathologist that inspires the best out of her clients. We are very lucky to have her as part of our team. Tabitha recently married in May of 2019 and is now getting used to her new last name Tabitha Chaseling.
