Approach & Bio

Fiona has practised as a speech-language pathologist for 20 years in Hong Kong, Australia and the United Kingdom. She is available to provide online speech, language and literacy services to students.

Fiona is committed to delivering high quality services that are empathetic and evidence-based and tailored to meet the needs of each individual client, family and educational setting. She thoroughly enjoys working with children and adolescents of all ages and with all kinds of communication strengths and weaknesses. She works closely with parents, teachers and other significant people in a child’s life to ensure that the best outcomes possible are attained.

Fiona has developed experience and extensive clinical knowledge in working with a range of communication difficulties, including: speech sounds (articulation and phonology); speech fluency (stuttering); receptive language (such as understanding words, sentences, instructions, stories); expressive language (saying words, sentences, grammar, telling stories, expressing thoughts, feelings and information cohesively); literacy skills (reading, spelling, writing) and social skills. Fiona really enjoys helping children to become more confident as well as competent communicators.

Fiona is a trained Sounds-Write practitioner and can deliver the evidence-based and effective Sounds-Write program to students who need additional help to develop their reading and spelling skills. See HERE for more information about Sounds-Write.
