“When I was just six-years-old, I remember telling my dad that I was going to teach children how to speak when I grew up. That resolve has not wavered for five decades.
I am so lucky to have never considered my work as a job. It is good fun, thoroughly satisfying and I look forward to welcoming new little faces to my clinic every single day.
Therapy is not just about how a child communicates, it is about the whole child – what inspires them to talk, the way they learn and how they express their own unique personalities. Once I understand what makes my kids tick, then we have discovered how to nurture their way to effective communication.”
- Rosie Candler
Rosie Candler qualified as a speech pathologist 35 years ago and started out working with intellectually handicapped children. From there she worked in community health, government and ran a community clinic with a caseload of more than 500. She has owned the Coastal Speech and Language Pathology Clinic in City Beach for the last 25 years. She runs a home-based clinic where children and their parents can feel relaxed and, if appropriate her cat and dog can help out making the therapy interesting. It works!
Rosie Candler is a certified practising speech pathologist, which means that she maintains a high standard of reliance on current research and knowledge in all relevant areas.
Rosie is interested in all aspects of communication from birth to adolescence. She has even seen some of the parents for speech work when it impacts their children’s speech development.
Rosie’s key areas of interest are:
– Establishing language precursor skills, such as eye contact and imitation
– Stimulating first words and sentences
– Improving speech clarity
– Developing language skills that enhance literacy
– Fine-tuning all areas of communication to make your child an effective conversationalist
