Experienced children’s Speech Therapist Brenna Donovan has joined Kids First Children’s Services in Sydney’s northern beaches.
Brenna, who until recently has been providing speech therapy for children in California, has a Masters’ Degree in Speech Pathology and Communication Disorders and a Bachelors’ Degree in Psychology.
“I’m so excited to join Kids First’s experienced multi-disciplinary team,” Brenna said.
“Working with occupational therapists, child psychologists and teachers gives an extra dimension to my work as a speech therapist.”
“The children I work with not only get the benefit of my experience, but theirs too.”
During her career in private practice and schools, Brenna has worked widely with children who are late talkers, have articulation problems, stutter, have speech sound difficulties and children with language delays.
Her extensive work in schools for special needs children has given her particular expertise in supporting children with disabilities like Autism, Global Developmental Delays and Auditory Processing Disorders.
Brenna has a special interest in the use of technology to support children’s communication and is well-respected for her expertise with iPads, apps and other innovative speech therapy tools.
She is so well-respected for her knowledge in this area that she has presented conference workshops on this topic to the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association at a state and national level.
Brenna is part of Kids First’s Early Intervention and social skills team.
She also provides support to children with ASD through the Federal government’s Helping Children with Autism initiative as well as children with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Fragile X Syndrome, hearing and sight impairments who are eligible for the Better Start for Children with Disability program.
Medicare and health fund rebates are also available when children attend speech pathology sessions with Brenna.
Brenna is already one of Kids First’s most popular speech therapists.
