Rosalie Martin

Rosalie has been a clinical speech pathologist for more than 30 years and also a criminologist and a facilitator of courage-development workshops.

Rosalie was awarded 2017 Tasmanian Australian of the Year for work teaching literacy and communication to prisoners – and those at-risk of prison futures.
Prison literacy is only a part of the work which interests Rosie; but it is all tied together with this common thread: fine communication.

Rosalie is also available for public speaking roles, including: How to teach literacy to anyone; The continuum of literacy skills; Dyslexia; Building literacy in homeless and disadvantaged adults; Engaging the disengaged; The history of literacy; How Australia’s literacy woes arose and What is to be done about Australia’s literacy woes?

Rosalie founded a literacy-focused charity which delivered advocacy and flourishing literacy and communication programs for marginalised adults for a decade. She is also a facilitator of reflective dialogue and a criminologist. Rosalie is currently completing a PhD in criminology.
