Tasmanian. The quiet pursuit of the extraordinary.

Together with our partner Connect42, Speech Pathology Tasmania is in quiet pursuit of the extraordinary.

Will you join us?

We are the service partner delivering the speech pathology components of a new justice project, Just Moving On.

Just Moving On is an innovative project bringing ‘throughcare’ to citizens reintegrating in community after a time of incarceration. Throughcare means that practical support in trusted relationships continue ‘through’ the times of incarceration and transition back to community – and while reintegrating with family and community. Throughcare is an evidence-based strategy that has been shown to reduce reoffending.

Just Moving On is a ground-breaking project that will deliver the skills of the speech pathologist – and more – to returning citizens.

We seek the colleagueship of experienced speech pathologists joining us in the team at Speech Pathology Tasmania. Duties will be sensitively distributed between Just Moving On and our regular valued caseload. The regular caseload is varied, though primarily paediatric; and mostly connected to young people with disabilities, and their families.

Both full-time and flexible part-time working options are available.

The position(s) we offer include the excellent mentorship and colleagueship of our extended team of speech pathologists as well as with other professionals.

Just Moving On will be independently evaluated by the University of Tasmania. Successful applicants will be part of the team contributing to this evaluation.

Join us in this quiet pursuit as we collaborate with our ingenious partners to expand the extraordinary to the world.
