Words To Grow acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands, sea, sky and waterways on which we live and work. We pay our respects to the Elders past and present who continue cultural and spiritual connections to country. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, cultures and ways of being as valuable and significant to Australia and to our work as speech pathologists and educators.
