Who is the presenter?

Lauren Haskins
Practice Director, A Growing Understanding and Founder of Let’s Grow Together

Lauren has worked as a speech pathologist in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter region for more than 16 years and has a strong reputation as a skilled therapist and clinical supervisor.

Lauren established A Growing Understanding in 2016. She wanted to create a practice that was true to her experience, and provide individualised speech pathology services for children and their families within the Hunter Region.

With extensive experience as her foundation, Lauren’s vision of a professional and friendly practice that not only supported children, but parents, carers, and fellow clinicians as well, came to fruition. Through the provision of industry-leading care, Lauren strives to ‘shift the needle’ when it comes to paediatric care, and these efforts were recently recognised when the business was awarded the converted Lake Macquarie Business of the Year award.
