Our founder, Tara, is a speech-language pathologist from America who has a passion for helping others reach their potential. Upon moving to Australia, Tara began to learn more about the needs of Australians with disabilities. She heard the stories of families around the country struggling to find good skilled therapy support. It became her dream to help as many of these families as she could and provide them with hope for a better future for their loved ones. It is because of this dream that Elite Speech Therapy Services was established. Since its foundation, clients of all ability levels and conditions have been smashing goals and overcoming preconceived barriers.
Tara is the founder of Elite Speech Therapy Services. She is an American trained speech-language pathologist who maintains her certificate of clinical competence through the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), and is a certified practicing member of Speech Pathology Australia (SPA).
Tara completed both her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Kansas State University. During her studies she was awarded the highest academic honours, and participated in extensive language research. Tara practiced speech-language pathology for many years in California before relocating to Australia.
Tara has years of experience treating both children and adults with a wide range of etiologies. She has done extensive trainings throughout the USA and is a certified provider of Vital Stim therapy. Tara utilizes specialised treatment programs including PROMPT therapy, Oral Placement Therapy, Beckman Oral Motor Exercises, and Hanen.
