Alisa Lingham

Speech Pathologist
Lives on Wadawurrung land (she/her)
Language spoken: English

Alisa enjoys working with people of all ages. The children and adults Alisa supports often communicate in unique ways, both with and without spoken words. Alisa focuses on people’s strengths, their interests, and their curiosity about the world.  Alisa loves to work on goals that help children and adults get out-and-about in their neighbourhood and be a part of their community.  

Before working online, Alisa spent a lot of time working for organisations that provided home-visiting services. She loves telehealth because it lets her connect with people in their own homes and other familiar places where they communicate and live their daily lives. Therapy builds upon real-world moments and activities that are interesting and meaningful to the person. Alisa works closely with the person’s support teams, forming strong partnerships to help them succeed.  

Alisa has worked as a Speech Pathologist for about 15 years. Alisa has completed a Bachelor of Speech Pathology, a Master of Special Education and a Master of Public Health. She has completed ongoing professional training as a Speech Pathologist, including several Hanen programs for parents (It Takes Two to Talk, More Than Words and TalkAbility). Alisa lives with her partner and kids in regional Victoria.
