Michael is a highly trained paediatric speech pathologist with a strong reputation for providing children with creative and engaging speech therapy that focuses on their individual needs.
Prior to joining the Kids First team, Michael worked for a highly respected children’s charity delivering speech therapy to disadvantaged children in Sydney preschools and schools. He has also worked in private clinic settings.
Michael’s kind and compassionate approach to every family’s needs and his ability to build rapport quickly and easily with children is often remarked upon by parents, carers and teachers.
His broad range of clinical skills means that he helps children of all ages and abilities.
Michael enjoys supporting kids who struggle with issues like articulation problems and during his career he has also assisted many children with expressive and receptive language delays.
His work in primary and high schools has also given him a sound understanding of the curriculum, and helping children to improve their spelling, reading and writing is another of Michael’s clinical strengths.
Michael is a popular therapist because his effective, evidence based approach is equalled by the energy and enthusiasm that he brings to each and every speech therapy session.
Kids enjoy Michael’s fun approach and parents appreciate his thorough and dedicated commitment to helping children reach their speech, language and learning goals.
Michael’s experience supporting children with additional needs makes him an important member of our multi-disciplinary Early Intervention team and he also supports children who receive self or plan managed NDIS funding.
Appointments with Michael can be claimed through private health funds and Medicare (when a plan has been set up by a GP).
