Melaine1 After graduating from Latrobe University, Melbourne I moved and worked with children and adults in a hospital setting south coast NSW where I met my husband and then moved to New Zealand. I worked for Specialist Education Services in an Early Intervention Team for 10 years with a wide range of children and their families. In January 2007 we moved to Perth for the warm coastal lifestyle. I especially enjoy working with preschoolers and early primary school aged children who have difficulties with speech sounds, language skills, phonological awareness, stuttering, attention, listening, auditory processing and memory
