Andrea is a graduate of speech pathology from the University of Queensland. Since the beginning of 2010, she has worked with MontroseAccess on the Gold Coast helping children with physical disabilities such as muscular dystrophy, Prader-Willi syndrome and juvenile arthritis. This has involved a wide range of severities and difficulties with speech, language, literacy, stuttering, alternative communication and swallowing. Before this, Andrea has worked in private practice in Brisbane, adult community health and for the Association for the Pre-school Education of Deaf Children. She is trained in using PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) for children with motor speech disorders and is excited to have joined the Studio 4 team in October 2013.
