Emma has been working as part of the HDST team since 2015. Emma sees clients across a wide range of age groups, but has a keen interest in developing early literacy, fluency and speech sound skills in preschool children, and literacy skills in school aged children.
Emma instantly builds relationships and rapport with the families she works with. She believes in discovering what motivates a child and then using this during therapy to make learning fun and enjoyable. Emma finds it very rewarding to have a job where she can make such a difference to a child and their family’s life.
Outside of work, Emma enjoys catching up with family and friends, reading, exploring cafes and restaurants around Sydney, and going on road trips to the Blue Mountains and the coast.
