Speech And Language Pathologist

  • Works with children

In a parallel universe, David Vann may be a member of The Wiggles: he’s musical, he’s playful and he captivates children’s attention.

We’re glad he’d rather be a Therapy Pro speech and language pathologist!

While David has extensive experience working with speech fluency and language difficulties faced by clients of all ages, it’s with children that he’s found greatest resonance.

“I seek to look at the world from my client’s viewpoint, find what captures their interest and work to build their attention, their interest and their involvement with others through that interest,” he says.

Working with child, teenage and adult clients, David can assess speech, language and swallowing difficulties, present practical strategies to suit everyday living, and prescribe technological aids for alternative non-verbal communication, as needed.

Many of his clients have complex multiple diagnoses and varying needs. In working with children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), for example, he’s helped strengthen their ability to deal with change or interact socially, as well as improve sensory processing.

David is passionate about the role parents, family members and significant others play in his clients’ lives and keenly involves them.

He’s also fascinated by research and new treatments for stuttering.

David is a University of Sydney graduate.
