Bio

*Now returning to limited outdoor playground visits. Contact for more information!* I am a bilingual English/Cantonese speech-language pathologist that specializes in serving children between 0-6 years of age. I provide a variety of services including assessment, treatment, consultation, and report writing. I am able to serve children with a variety of needs including expressive language (talking), receptive language (understanding), speech sounds, stuttering, selective mutism, social communication, pre-linguistic skills, etc. I have worked with a variety of children with complex communication needs including autism spectrum disorder, Down Syndrome, and other syndromes/chromosome differences. My approach to therapy is play-based and empowers parents to support their children's communication needs. I am certified in Hanen - It Takes Two to Talk, PROMPT trained (apraxia of speech), and will be certified in Hanen - More than Words (for autistic children). I value professional development so that I can continue to learn new approaches to support your child. Please visit my website at www.startnowspeech.com to learn more about me, my services, and to get your questions answered on my FAQ page. I look forward to connecting with you!
