UNDERSTANDING AND USING LANGUAGE
I work with children to help develop their communication and feeding skills develop from birth right through the school age years. I treat children who present with a variety of speech and language needs, including: articulation and phonology disorders, expressive and receptive language delay/disorders, late talkers and dyspraxia.
A particular area of interest for me is the treatment of feeding and swallowing disorders in babies and children. I gained specialist feeding and swallowing skills working with babies and children who presented with more complex needs during my years working in Dublin’s acute paediatric hospitals.
I became a Hanen Certified Speech and Language Therapist in 2009. The Hanen approach puts parents first by providing parents and caregivers with the knowledge and training they need to help children with language development.
I also have experience working with children in the United States with children who had a range of neurological and developmental disabilities including cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury in their school setting.
I have passion for ‘child focused therapy’. I like to develop interventions that suit each child and their family’s individual needs.
