Emily is an Australian-licensed bilingual (English and Cantonese) Speech and Language Therapist in Hong Kong. She is also competent in Mandarin. Emily received her Master degree in Speech Language Pathology from The University of Sydney. Emily has experience working with children aged 6 months to young adults, who have a range of additional needs - including speech and language delays, phonological awareness difficulties, pragmatic language (i.e. social language) skills and feeding issues. Emily also has experience working with children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. She has delivered speech therapy services in a range of settings, including day care/early childhood centres, public and private schools (from Preschool to High School), hospitals, community health centres, nursing homes, and at private homes.
Born and raised in Australia, Emily appreciates the inclusiveness and opportunities a local community provides. This is why she adopts a child-centred and family-centred approach in therapy. She is passionate about supporting children and their families/caregivers to reach their goals, and for children to be able to engage and participate fully in their daily lives. Emily enjoys tailoring therapy sessions to a child’s interest/s to maintain their motivation and engagement; while also focusing on parent/caregiver training, to provide appropriate advice and strategies to ensure that a child is well-supported in their therapy journey and overall development.
