I am currently studying a Bachelor of Speech Pathology at the Australian Catholic University.
I have experience working with children after completing four weeks of placement at Windsor State School. During this placement, I gained supervised experience in administering speech and language assessments, as well as providing intervention that focused on speech sound disorders.
In terms of my experience with adult clients, I will be attending a placement at the Mater Hospital in October 2023 where I will be working with those patients who have significant communication deficits, dysphagia, and aphasia. I have also completed a four week simulated placement in which I gained an insight into working with those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s or who have sustained a stroke. I have had supervised experience with providing ongoing therapy to adults, specifically in building capacity in activities of daily living due to my time working as an occupational therapy assistant.
