A Little More About Us

Our Vision is for PAHS to be a leading advocate for people with disabilities, to focus on ‘ability, not disability’ and to work together, within our local community in whatever way is required.

Our mission is to provide quality allied health services in Southern Adelaide, that exceed participants expectations, utilising a holistic client centered approach while meeting legislative and regulatory requirements.

We strive to provide a professional, confidential service promoting flexibility and upholding human rights while creating opportunities to empower the individuals we support to live the life they choose.

Vision and Values

In addition to being governed by our professional codes of conduct we also align ourselves with the NDIS code of conduct. Our core underpinning values are:

Accessibility:

We strive to maintain an accessible and flexible service to ensure that individuals and their families are not disadvantaged or excluded due to their disability, location or availability.

Collaboration:

We collaborate with all those working with our clients, and within our multi-disciplinary team. Through this collaborative approach, we ensure all individuals and their families are supported appropriately and a comprehensive and consistent approach is used.

Inclusive:

We are committed to providing an inclusive service to any person with a disability and do not discriminate based on age, gender, race/nationality or ability.

Respectful:

We use a person-centred and family-centred approach in our services, working in equal partnership with each person and their family. We ensure we build a mutually respectful and trusting relationship with all people we work with.

Responsive:

We endeavour to meet the unique and varied needs of the individuals we work with and their families and respond to these as quickly as possible, to ensure services are effective.

Transparency:

We are honest and open, to ensure that all individuals understand our services, any potential limitations and associated fees for service.

Quality:

We persevere to provide a high quality service to all we work with and their families. We ensure that we meet all legislative and regulatory requirements.

Our Story

Est. 2014

Karen Pearson, an experienced Speech Pathologist, founded Pearson Allied Health Services in 2014. Karen brings diverse knowledge and a wealth of experience from 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.

Family Advisory Group

Meeting the needs of our Community

Feedback from our participants, families, carers and the community is important to all of us at the Pearson Allied Health Services team. This information helps us to ensure we continue to provide high quality services that meet the needs of our community. To assist us in this, our Family Advisory Group meet regularly to discuss and provide feedback on our current programs and services, proposed programs and our policies and procedures. Our Family Advisory Group consists of a mix of current Pearson Allied Health Services Participants and their parents, guardians and carers.
