About Disability SPOT
Creating a sense ofin our industry
Disability SPOT is a group of passionate Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists that are dedicated to presenting best practice seminars, as well as building networks and a sense of belonging and support to those working with people with disabilities.
Our aim is to promote continuing professional development, professional support and education on best practice. We provide opportunities for therapists to establish and expand their networks both within their industry, and wider a field. By doing so we are creating a collaborative community that supports each other over multiple topics.
