We Care. We Collaborate. We Empower.
Hi! I’m Alicia, and I’m an experienced certified Practicing Speech Pathologist who has worked with people of all ages within the disability sector, in private practice and in the WA Paediatric Community Health since 2015.
Passionate about my work, I am fully committed to delivering a collaborative, fun, evidence-based and family-centred service to all my clients. I have a collaborative approach with clients and families in the assessment and prescription of assistive technology which includes alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) devices.
Speaking both English and Mandarin, I have worked with many bilingual clients in my private practice. I also enjoy working with families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
I have training in the following areas:
- Hanen It Takes to Talk
- Hanen Target Word
- Hanen More Than Words
- Hanen Talkability
- Sounds Write (Literacy)
- Talk4Writing (Narrative & Writing)
- Lidcombe (Stuttering)

If you are eligible and would like to use Medicare funding, you will need a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) or Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) referral from your General Practitioner (GP). Please note that our services do not bulk bill and there will be out of pocket expenses after Medicare rebates after each session.
Private Health Insurance rebates
If you have private health insurance which has Speech Pathology cover, you should be able to claim a portion of the fees through your private health insurance.
