We love chatting to Speech Pathologists who may be interested in joining the team at Kids+.

Kids+ is located in Geelong, Victoria on the beautiful Surf Coast. Our region provides a lifestyle that is second to none.

We provide family focused allied health services including assessment, therapy and family support.  We specialise in interventions for babies, children and young people with cerebral palsy and similar neurological conditions.  Our focus is to work in partnership with families to understand their individual need and values.

Kids Plus is a seriously great place to work, just ask our Senior Speech Pathologist Jenna:

“Witnessing a young person tell his parents for the first time that he loves them with his new communication device, or seeing a young person communicating more confidently than they have before are what comes to mind when I reflect on nearly 4 years of work as a speech pathologist at Kids Plus.

I get to be a part of our young people and their family’s special moments; to play a role in informing and influencing a young person’s social world, to change attitudes so that those around them can presume in their potential; to share these experiences and support our participants to achieve their goals and live a more self-determined life is an overwhelming privilege.”

We value sharing our knowledge with families, early learning centres, schools and other health professionals to create more inclusive communities.

Our service aims to empower participants and enhance participation in everyday activities.  We care about improving quality of life.

We have a team of passionate, dedicated, highly skilled professionals with a commitment to furthering their specialist skills.  We love celebrating success as young people learn, grow and develop. We provide our staff with ongoing mentoring, training and support.

Kids+ is an independent not for profit organisation, governed by a Board of Directors.
