How I work
Through education, guidance and support I help you make informed decisions about intervention.
I engage families in an ongoing and honest conversation about the best approach for your child.
I understand the importance of shared decision making. After the initial assessment, I present families with a range of options which are realistic and achievable for your child and family.
From here we'll find the right intervention for your child. This includes identifying how you can take steps to help your child at home. Together we identify the appropriate frequency and intensity of sessions, to suit your goals and circumstances.
Children with communication difficulties require ongoing support. My goal is to find a rhythm with you and your child to best equip your family to navigate the learning years.
