Meet your Certified Speech Pathologist – Kat Fusco

Kat Fusco

Certified Practising Speech Pathologist

Kat is a certified practising speech pathologist with an interest in providing person-centred, evidence-based, functional approaches to care.

After initially commencing a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Voice) at the Elder Conservatorium of Music and spending more than a decade as a singing teacher, Kat’s interests in speech and voice mechanics led her to pivot her focus to Speech Pathology. She commenced her Bachelor of Speech Pathology in 2015, and graduated from Flinders University with First Class Honours, a University Medal, and Speech Pathology Australia’s Student Award for outstanding clinical and academic performance.

Kat’s clinical experience spans across adult inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, including stroke and general rehabilitation and outpatient swallowing disorders and day rehabilitation clinics. Her experience has also involved the facilitation of education sessions for staff, clients, and their families for both communication and swallowing, including education addressing modified diet preparation. Kat has also enjoyed facilitating clinical education for several speech pathology students in both hospital and community settings.

Kat now holds a teaching and research position at Flinders University, and is continuing clinical practice in a part-time capacity at Adelaide Voice Therapy from the Norwood Clinic. She provides assessment and therapy for adults living with communication disorders including aphasia, apraxia of speech, dysarthria, dysphonia, and dysfluency, as well as assessment, management and education for swallowing disorders.
