Hi there! My name is Cindy and I am excited and so happy to begin helping children and families in the Edmonton area. I graduated from McGill University and have worked with babies to adults, with my main focus being on preschool and kindergarten age children specializing in the areas of Autism Spectrum Disorders, literacy, language delay and phonology. I love empowering families as their child's best teachers through a lot of play, conversation and fun! I am currently the only certified PLAY Project consultant in Alberta and use the methods, techniques and activities of the PLAY Project (based on Stanley Greenspan's DIRFloortime model) with all of my students since it lays the groundwork for all successful communication. I value continuing education and have earned three ACE awards through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association thus far which equates to over 200 extra hours above and beyond the certifications and requirements listed below. I find so much joy in helping children communicate to the best of their abilities and I look forward to moving forward on this path with Chatty Therapy.
When I am not working with children and families, you can fnd me teaching Zumba or yoga classes, chatting with my three children or curled up in bed reading a good book with a mug of tea!
