Profile

Shareen has over 20 years of experience practising as a Speech Pathologist privately and in health, community and education settings. She is an approved Medicare Provider and member of Speech Pathology Australia. She has primarily worked with young children and adolescents, but also worked with adult voice, dysfluency and both children and adults with language and literacy challenges. She has a mixed cultural heritage and has a special interest in working with those from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

 

Shareen completed her Masters Degree in 2001 and conducted research focussed on ‘late talkers.’ She has also published research articles on working with families in goal setting and intervention in paediatric practise. She is also a mum of triplets and so also has a special interest in working with children from multiple births. Her other areas of practise include the following:

 

  • Speech sound development
  • Language understanding and expression
  • Stuttering
  • Auditory processing and working memory issues
  • Language and literacy (issues around learning, reading and spelling)
  • Feeding issues in babies, toddlers and young children
  • English accent improvements
  • Autism and other pervasive developmental disorders
  • Voice

 

 

Shareen is passionate about working with people with communication challenges to help bring out the best in them. She finds it professionally rewarding to help guide people to find their ‘voice’ and participate in their environments with more content.
