Rachel graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Speech Therapy in 2011. Since that time Rachel has worked in Brisbane with a range of clients, including those with speech, language, literacy, social communication and fluency (stuttering) difficulties.
Rachel has extensive experience working in schools and in clinics with children with speech, language, literacy, social skills and fluency difficulties. Rachel has training and experience in paediatric fluency and provides intervention using the Lidcombe Program for fluency and Sounds-Write, an evidence-based systematic linguistic phonics programme. Rachel delivers the Bridges in Social Understanding Curriculum for many of her clients with social communication difficulties and Autism.
Rachel is passionate about ensuring each child reaches their potential and works collaboratively with families, teachers, learning support staff and other allied health specialists to ensure a coordinated approach to intervention is provided for each child.
Rachel has a special interest in the areas of literacy and language and finds it very rewarding to see students make gains in these areas. Development of these skills assists children in achieving academic success as well as participation in a classroom environment and in the community.
