Clinical Experience

I have gained speech and language therapy experience in mainstream schools and the NHS in the UK, as well as private practices in Singapore and Dublin. Throughout which, I have pushed my own development through gaining professional qualifications in a range of areas. I have undertaken courses in the Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme, ELKLAN Total Training Package, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), PROMPT (PROMPTS for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets), Makaton, DIR/ Floortime 101 and DIR/Floortime 201.

I have worked with children with a variety of speech and language difficulties such as language delays and disorders, speech sound difficulties, stammering and social skills. I have worked with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, genetic disorders, global developmental delay, epilepsy and intellectual difficulties. I currently specialize in working with children with mild to severe speech sound delays and disorders.

I offer assessment and therapy for children who present with speech sound errors resulting in their speech being difficult to understood by family and friends. Some examples of speech sound difficulties include producing K as T (e.g. key-tea), producing SP as B (e.g. spider- bider) or speech is more difficult to understand in longer sentences.
