JANELLE CURRY | Owner and Certified Practising Speech Pathologist
Who knew I could turn my love of talking into my career?!
I’ve always loved children too, and when deciding on which allied health stream to follow, it made sense to combine these two loves and become a speech therapist for kids.
Communication is a fundamental human right and helping kids become more effective communicators is my passion. The link between spoken language skills and literacy is clear; difficulty with the former can negatively affect reading, writing and behaviour development. But it’s not about just ‘fixing’ the sounds and words they use, it’s about figuring out what underlying factors might also be having an impact. And it’s this holistic approach to working with kids that is the reason I established my private practice in the way I did – with occupational therapists and speech therapists working side-by-side.
When you’re dealing with children, you really need a team approach to ensure consistency and stability; teachers, grandparents, older siblings, parents, other therapists, all working together. I really enjoy this aspect of what I do, and consider it a privilege to be invited into the homes of these people who are willing to learn and grow.
Whilst I could talk excitedly all day about what I do, I also have other things in my life that keep me busy! I have three awesome kids of my own who do everything from basketball to singing and dancing, I’m a keen netballer and throw the odd ball around in a local ‘mum’s team’, I read fiction voraciously, and love a glass or two of wine around the campfire with friends. The beach is my happy place and I’m blessed to live just 5 minutes away.
