Woden Community Service's logo

Woden Community Service (WCS) is a for-purpose organisation that has been providing community-based services for over 50 years. As an established organisation, our vision of providing a caring community where everyone belongs, is achieved through our values of inclusion, compassion, hope, responsiveness, integrity, and social justice.

Our new allied health service launched recently, and we are seeking another Speech Pathologist to work with our Senior Speech Pathologist in growing and developing a quality service for the community. We offer individual and group assessment and therapy for children up to 12 years in various settings, catering for both self-funded and NDIS participants. We also provide professional learning in educational settings.

The current clinical caseload ranges from phonological, articulation and motor speech disorders to language difficulties and disorders, social communication and literacy difficulties and emerging communication. Functional outcomes are the focus of our support. We work closely with families to establish goals and monitor progress. We use evidence to inform the frequency and length of sessions and the intervention period.

There is future scope to branch services into mental health, adult or aged care based on your experience, special interests or goals for professional growth.

We are also adding occupational therapy services to the team, providing further opportunities to work inter-professionally with allied health colleagues.
