“From our very first consultation with Melissa, we were made to feel at ease and comfortable. We first saw Melissa a few months ago to have an assessment on our son's speech as it was obvious he was having some difficulties with sounds, articulation and being understood by others. Melissa discussed in detail our son's assessment results and gave us her suggestions in what would be the best approach for his speech therapy.”
“The sessions with Melissa are always fun, engaging and interactive especially when trying to keep a 4.5 year old boy focused. With Melissa's guidance, expertise and patience it has been both encouraging and very rewarding to see the huge improvement in our son's progress in such a short period of time.”
“We have found Melissa to be extremely professional and caring and would highly recommend her practice to others.”

"Melissa has been working with our son, Adam, for the past six months.
Apart from the obvious progression in his skill development, we have been most impressed by Melissa's knowledge, skills, manner and sensitivity.
We believe the key to Adam's enthusiasm comes from the working relationship Melissa has developed with him. She has a wonderful rapport with our son and certainly has his respect. It is a rare treat to meet such a gifted professional and a wonderful opportunity for our son, not just to achieve his goals, but to enrich his life.
I can genuinely express my delight and amazement at the way that Melissa extracts such effort from Adam while she still manages to balance the demands of the program. All this is done in a friendly and personable atmosphere of collaboration.
We are extremely grateful for her efforts and consider our son to be very fortunate to be one of her clients and we believe it is a privilege to have our son included in her program.
As my wife and I are also both medical practitioners, we have now started to refer some of our patients on to this invaluable service."

Melissa displays extremely sensible guidance, excellent support and wonderful teaching abilities. With her help, my son is achieving his very best, realising his full potential and achieving the results required at his age.”

"School is hard work when your child is one who does not fit the standard mould. It's easy to slip through the gaps. Our experience with Melissa has been such a relief. Melissa has been able to objectively determine the specific language and literacy issues faced by our children and then institute practical programs that have achieved great results for both of our sons."

Catherine - Oyster Bay
“We are really pleased with the progress that our son has made whilst completing a literacy program with Melissa. Not only has his reading improved, we have also noticed that he now has more confidence when completing homework and school projects. He now loves to read and is reading everything he can. Our son's spelling age has improved by at least 12 months and in his last spelling test he received 65 out of 65. His teachers have been blown away by his improvement.”

She has also given me the tools and confidence I need to best help my son. We travel to see Melissa, but it is well worth the distance. I am very grateful to Melissa for all she has done for our family.”
