Melaine Morrow

Melaine is a highly skilled clinician with 30yrs experience across a range of settings including rural hospitals, early childhood centres, schools, client homes and clinics. After graduating from La Trobe University Melbourne, Melaine worked for several years with both children and adults on the south coast of NSW. It was during this time she met her husband and then moved to the North Island of New Zealand, working for 10 years in Special Education (Ministry of Education) in their school and early intervention teams.

Melaine moved to Perth and joined the team at TLC-WA in 2007. In addition to the clients she sees at the clinic, Melaine also services a local school. She has experience working with young children to adolescents with a range of speech sound, language and literacy difficulties and has a family focused approach in making functional goals for her clients. Her areas of particular interest include speech sound, language and communication development, stuttering and specific learning difficulties (reading, writing and spelling).

Melaine is trained in several programs including Hanen’s It Takes Two to Talk and the Lidcombe Stuttering Programme. She has completed training in Sounds~Write, Talk For Writing and other literacy programs from the Dyslexia-SPELD Foundation. Melaine is continually learning and updating her practice. She strives to use evidence-based programs and approaches that are neurodiversity-affirming for individuals who are neurodivergent.

In her free time, Melaine enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. Her favourite pastimes include yoga, long bike rides and walks along the coast/local lakes as well as making time for a good coffee with friends.

Melaine is a Certified Practising Speech Pathologist.
