I have been working as an all-round speech therapist at TinyEYE since May 2019. I treat language/speech problems (including multilingualism), abnormal mouth habits, voice problems, children/adults who stutter, have difficulties with executive functions, reading comprehension and reading and spelling difficulties. I have an affinity with children, but also with adults/elderly people with neurological disorders. During my education (2012-2016) I did a minor in Aphasia, Dysarthria and Dysphagia. I also speak several languages. I give treatments in Dutch, English, Farsi and I am currently learning Spanish.
It is important that children can be helped with pleasure, because then they are most open to learning. I like the diversity which you have as a speech language therapist. No person, request for help and problems are the same, so I find it a challenge to bring out the best in each client. Not only good supervision of the child, but also of the parents I find important and challenging. In addition, coordination between parents and teachers is very important and I try to align as much as possible with what is offered in the classroom. Furthermore, there is close contact with other disciplines such as general practitioner, pediatrician and internal school supervisor.
In order to keep my speech therapy knowledge and skills at its best, I follow further and additional training courses. I am also a member of a quality circle. I have followed the course oro-myofunctional therapy (omft) and the course ‘The reading and spelling specialist PO / VO’. This allows me to offer children and adults assistance in the field of abnormal mouth behavior and reading and spelling difficulties.
My hobbies are traveling, dancing and drawing. I love being creative and that is certainly possible with TinyEYE. In addition, it gives me the opportunity to work while traveling and also treat clients abroad. Online speech therapy is the way to the future!
