N.S.W. – RDI® Program Consultant in Training

Certified Practising Speech Pathologist

I am a Certified Practising Speech Pathologist with a special interest in supporting communication of children of all ages and abilities.

I graduated from the University of Sydney and have worked in clinical practice, both in Sydney and Singapore. I have worked with clients from many different cultural backgrounds, and value the relationship and collaboration I form with my clients and their families. Apart from my clinical work, I serve as a supervisor and professional mentor to student and newly graduated Speech Pathologists, both in Sydney and Singapore. I also work as part of the integrated team in an inclusive early childhood setting, where I work alongside Early Childhood Educators, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, and other Speech Pathologists.

My clinical work has led me to believe that therapy should work to unlocking a child’s potential, and include the family in all steps of the process. I am currently undergoing RDI certification training, as this approach taps into both of these aspects I fundamentally value in treatment.

Services offered include:

  • Language therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Individual and small group social thinking training
  • In-service and consultation services for teachers across grade levels
  • Professional mentoring services

I am committed to ongoing training in innovative and dynamic therapy techniques. Apart from being an RDI CiT, I also have training and experience in the following programs:

  • PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets)
  • Social Thinking by Michelle Garcia Winner
  • Seeing Stars (literacy program by Linda Mood Bell)
  • Visualizing and Verbalizing (language program by Linda Mood Bell)
