The ChatBox team
Gam is a Brisbane Speech Pathologist (MSPath UQ), (BSc(Psych) UQ)
Since becoming one of the rare male speech therapists (who still knows his My Little Ponies), Gam has many years of experience providing speech therapy to kids and adults with and without disabilities. He is also an experienced trainer for carers and parents and families and is good at making therapy understandable and doable. Gam is a delayed language expert and an Angry Birds champ (when clients aren’t using all his power-ups).
Gam loves using his skills as a speech therapist to help school-age kids with literacy difficulties (reading, comprehension, sound awareness, the whole bag!) and as a person who used to have a stutter as a child, is interested in stuttering as well.
With lots of experience as a speech pathologist working with people with autism and a patient, flexible, client-directed style, Gam is good at making speech therapy fun and not ‘work’. Gam is also the author of a journal article, published in Cortex, Impaired semantic inhibition during lexical ambiguity repetition in Parkinson’s disease.
Gam is a registered provider under the FaHCSIA Helping Children with Autism and Better Start programmes.
When he isn’t doing something more fun, like therapy, he’s also the director of ChatBox (Brisbane Speech Pathology).
