The areas that I specialise in are as follows:
Difficulties in speech sound production skills (delayed or disordered speech)
Articulation speech difficulties
Difficulties in understanding and using the spoken language
Stuttering/stammering (under 7 years old)
Speech sound awareness difficulties (pre-literacy skills)
I am open to meeting you and your child to find out if I can be of help. I am a friendly and professional mobile Speech-Language Therapist, who will travel to your home, pre-school/kindergarten or school. I am based in Point Chevalier but will travel in the wider surrounding area. I can offer help to children up to the age of 16 years.
I trained to be a Speech-Language Therapist in the UK and graduated with honors in 1998. I then began working for the local health department. I have always worked with children in a variety of settings (home, pre-school,school and clinic). I then left the UK to work in Auckland in 2005 for the Ministry of Education - Special Education. I enjoyed working there until 2011, when I left to be a stay at home mum. I am a full member of the New Zealand Speech-Language Therapy Association. I am now excited to be getting back to what I love, working with families and educational staff to enhance a child's communication and learning skills.
My emphasis is to keep it fun for the children and informative for the adults. I look forward to hearing from you
