If you are a therapist, graduate or allied health professional looking for a great professional development join us in our upcoming webinar on September 6th, 2023 at 12:30pm AEST.

“Do I mention autism?” is a frequently asked question of Early Start Australia’s Speech Pathologist Robyn Stephen who has spent a lifelong career working with parents and neurodivergent children helping them to find positive pathways forward.   

At Early Start Australia we are fortunate to have many passionate and highly experienced clinicians who enthusiastically support clinical growth of those early in their career through to experienced clinicians. Robyn is one of these people and she is delighted to be presenting on a topic so close to her heart.
