I started my career working in primary schools and special schools with children with autism, learning delays and physical disabilities. Several years on, I began working at Act for Kids providing speech therapy to children who have experienced abuse and neglect. I have also worked in Aboriginal medical services and for QLD Health’s Child and Youth Mental Health Services.

Speech Pathology – My Approach…

I love working with young people and experience great satisfaction from the work that I do.  I use a strengths based approach that considers each individual child’s strengths as well as their difficulties. Strong communication skills give children the tools they need to successfully learn, communicate and connect with the world around them. I believe that taking time to create a relationship and environment where children feel confident, capable and challenged is the best way to support them to learn and grow!
