When Elyse approached Kids First for a job, she told us that she wanted ‘to be part of a dynamic and professional company and learn from highly skilled colleagues.’ Luckily for us, we get to learn from her too!
Multi-skilled Elyse has a Bachelor of Speech, Hearing and Language Sciences and is currently completing a Bachelor of Health Science/Master of Occupational Therapy. As an emerging clinician working in support of our multi-disciplinary team, Elyse brings the most current and innovative practices from her studies to our children, their families, and local educators. She helps children to practice and master the skills learned at Kids First and works closely with parents and carers so that they have the practical knowledge needed to guide and encourage their kids.
Elyse loves the flexibility of her important role at Kids First because, in addition to her in-clinic work at Brookvale, it allows to her to support children in their natural environments such as their preschool or home.
Known at Kids First for her warmth, enthusiasm and commitment, Elyse is also a popular facilitator of our small group social skills and school holiday workshop programs.
