Before life as a speech pathologist, Amy obtained a degree in Linguistics from the University of Iowa (USA). Upon moving to Australia, she studied Speech Pathology at LaTrobe University, Melbourne.
Amy is a Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist, registered with Speech Pathology Australia. She is Hanen-trained and also trained in PROMPT technique. Amy is committed to ongoing professional development and has done further studies in the areas of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and alternative and augmentative communication (AAC).
Amy’s clinical approach to therapy is based on the idea that children will become active participants in therapy if it is fun and motivating. Parental concerns are discussed, and achievable therapy goals are designed to make functional improvements to a child’s communication. The ultimate aim of therapy is to guide and support a child towards functional, independent, socially appropriate, and age-appropriate communication, to the best of their ability.
