Talkshop Snapshot

Supporting in-coming clinicians to experience work in a private practice

What is a Talkshop Snapshot?

At Talkshop we specialise in providing dynamic, play-based unforgettable therapy experiences. We want to support our in-coming clinicians thrive in their first jobs by partnering with a trained clinician for a day for a fully hands-on experience.

A new graduate observation gives you the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a speech pathologist. You will attend a morning team meeting and shadow a speech pathologist in their clinical sessions. You will learn how clinicians prep on the go, how to prioritise therapy goals and observe how to maximise efficiency in the real world of clinical practice.

During clinical sessions you will have the opportunity to observe and engage in therapy sessions as appropriate for each client. You will be able to observe and discuss clinical reasoning decisions, problem solving and sensory and behavior strategies being expertly used within sessions. You will have opportunities to debrief with clinicians to learn the ‘why’ along with seeing the ‘how’ in action. Discover and develop your own dynamic self.
