SENIOR SPEECH PATHOLOGIST/DIRECTOR
“It takes a big heart to help shape little minds”
Amy Pollitt is one of the directors of Early Start Speech Pathology. Amy is a Newcastle University graduate, a bubbly infectious speech pathologist and a super mum to two darling crazy boys.
Amy’s special interests include Assistive Technology for non verbal communicators using LAMP methodology, working with children on the Autism Spectrum, as well as creating new and fabulous ideas for running groups to accommodate for social communication difficulties amongst our clients and community.
Amy has attended Social Thinking training courses in Sydney, regular APAC attendant and presenter (2017) and is MULTILIT trained.
Amy and Michelle’s dream was to one day join forces and create a dynamic, ethical and welcoming speech pathology clinic. And they did.
Ask Amy about her acting career before becoming a speech pathologist.. Amy uses her acting skills as well as speech pathology training to develop our widely popular social skills groups at Early Start Speech Pathology.
Amy proudly presented at the 5th APAC (Asia Pacific Autism Conference) in Sydney in September 2017, outlining her movie making social skills groups for children on the Autism Spectrum, and we couldn’t be more proud of her.
NOTE- You may see Amy currently limping around Early Start this year as she has broken her right foot and is slowly on the mend, having had 2 surgeries already. Be patient if you see her in the hallway, we don’t want her injuring herself any more!!
