Michelle works with people who stutter or have speech sound disorders across all age groups. She is a strong believer in providing individualised treatment based on a client’s goals. For preschool children, Michelle has training in the Lidcombe Program and Palin Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, as well as experience using the Westmead Program for stuttering, and experience with a range of approaches for treating phonological disorders and articulation errors for those children with unclear speech sounds.
Michelle has experience treating school-aged children with residual speech sound errors, and adults who have dysarthria following an acquired brain injury. For teenagers and adults who stutter, Michelle has training in The Camperdown Program, Smooth Speech and the ISTAR Comprehensive Stuttering Program and experience using stutter modification treatments. The treatments Michelle offers for school-aged children and adults include minimising the cognitive and social impacts of stuttering or the speech disorder on the individual as well as reducing the severity of the stutter or speech disorder. She has undertaken short-course training in CBT, ACT and Solution-focused Brief Therapy for children and adults who stutter.
