Our Story

Est. 2014

Pearson Allied Health Services was founded in 2014 by Karen Pearson, a Speech Pathologist with experience working with children and adults with disabilities in both the Government and Private sectors. Karen’s motivation for starting Pearson Allied Health Services was to provide families with the type of service that she wanted when she required Speech Pathology services for two of her own children. This motivation underpins our goal to provide a high quality, person and family centred service to families throughout South Australia.

 

With the commencement and rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme in South Australia, Participants and families now have the freedom and flexibility to choose their service providers that best meet their unique needs. By providing a high quality service and meeting the unique and individual needs of the individuals we support and their families, Pearson Allied Health Services has expanded from Karen working as a sole trader to a diverse, multidisciplinary team of staff, with a range of unique skills, strengths and backgrounds.

 

We are excited to be a part of the continued rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme in South Australia and to continue working with South Australians with disabilities to ensure they get the supports and services they need to live a quality and wholesome life.
