Liselle Grant, Senior Speech Pathologist, joined the Robyn Stephen & Associates Speech Pathology team in 2013, bringing with her a rich and diverse background of over 20 years experience in business communications and management, including 8 years as a State Manager in the corporate sector.
As a Speech Pathologist, Liselle initially worked at Eastern Health with adults in a sub-acute/rehabilitation setting, prior to moving into Paediatric Speech Pathology. Liselle delights in working with children of all ages on their speech, language, play, and pragmatic goals, and over the years, she has developed an enthusiastic special interest in assisting children with literacy development.
As an adjunct to her Masters in Speech Pathology and Masters in Communications, Liselle is currently completing her Masters in Teaching (Primary and Secondary), a pursuit that both complements and enhances her ongoing clinical Speech Pathology work. Liselle utilises a family-centred approach to therapy enabling parents/carers to incorporate strategies into functional everyday settings. By working in a multi-disciplinary partnership with families, medical and health professionals, and educators, Liselle enjoys maximising the outcomes for clients.
Liselle incorporates Social Thinking ® principles when addressing pragmatic goals and is has completed additional training in:

- Both Spalding® and Thrass® – to assist phonological awareness and literacy development
- Hanen® training – to develop clients’ play and language skills
