Georgia Stuart

Supervising Speech Pathologist

Georgia, the Supervising Speech Pathologist at Small TALK, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her role, having completed her Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Hons) in 2018. Her honours project focused on working with Allied Health Assistants (AHAs), and she further expanded her expertise by completing a Master of Special Education in 2022, with a special emphasis on Early Years, Social-Emotional Learning, and a focus on Autism. Georgia has undergone additional training in the Natural Language Acquisition approach, Neuro-affirming practice and trauma-informed care frameworks, and AAC (Alternative Augmentative Communication).

Her clinical special interest lies in supporting Social Communication in a Neuro-affirming way and enhancing functional communication across different life stages.

Georgia’s motivation in speech pathology is deeply personal, inspired by her younger sister who was minimally speaking until age six. This experience, coupled with her own background growing up in a mostly undiagnosed neurodivergent household, has given her a unique perspective on the dynamics of clashing communication styles and sensory needs. Discovering her own neurodivergence as an adult has further fueled her passion for educating and empowering others with knowledge about themselves and their brains.

In her role as a supervisor, Georgia is committed to guiding and supporting her team, drawing from her personal and professional experiences. She values seeing clients realize the power of their communication and their ability to impact their surroundings. Her approach to therapy is neuro-affirming, developmental, and trauma-informed, focusing on ensuring clients feel they have an equal say in their therapy.

Outside of work, Georgia enjoys activities like heavy workouts at the gym, cooking flavor-rich food, gaming, and plant care. She stays updated in the field of speech pathology through her membership in Speech Pathology Australia, the Therapist Neurodiversity Collective, and by reading journal articles and books about lived experiences to gain a well-rounded view on clinical topics.
