Our Vision

Vision Of Optimal Communications

Optimal Communications Speech Pathology was founded by Katrine Elliott, being an accredited Speech Pathologist with 20 years experience in clinical Speech Pathology and Private Practice supporting both adults and children across multiple clinical domains. In addition to being the principal, business developer and owner, Katrine is the mind and creative-artistic talent behind the development of the Phonic All Star Education Program for speech and literacy.

Optimal Communications Speech Pathology prides itself on being an innovative and highly resourced private speech pathology practice whilst maintaining the optimum of professional services with a ground-level community feel with all families and children that we support. Our focus is to support you to gain your or your child’s optimal potential in communication, academic success and personal accomplishments. Our programs are developed in collaboration with you and your child’s goals, with an integrated approach that fosters development of the whole person, physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually.

In a climate where Speech Pathology resources are highly sourced out for in our community with extensive waiting lists and stretched services available in the government model, Katrine and her team have a strong history of long-term committed therapeutic relationships with her clients and their programs that have enabled real life changing goals to be achieved.

“Yes…By standing by and being committed to long term therapy relationships, I have seen children grow up and now leave high school with successful stories where a love of learning and strengths in communication are now part of their everyday lives .”

It is our vision to focus on the results from the intervention whilst providing a therapy environment that is friendly, creative and fun. Children are identified for their unique strengths and talents and supported with their challenges in a positive environment that fosters positive rapport, building of self-confidence and self-esteem. Our intervention programs integrate multiple learning styles being suitable for the aural (listening) learner, the visual (seeing) learner, the tactile (touch) learner and the kinesthetic and experimental learner (just wants to get into it, see how it works and have a go!)

We strive to support you, your child and your family as a complete, whole unit in connection with service providers in the community such as your school, kindergarten and your medical team.

Our principle is…

…therapy is collaborative and a shared partnership to achieve  mutual goals…

…clinical therapy that demonstrates and achieves outcomes…

…people are valued for their individual talents…

…learning is fun, creative and can be a positive experience!
