Samantha Russell (Speech Language Therapist and Director of Speech4all)

I am a New Zealand trained Speech Language Therapist with a Bachelor of Speech Language Therapy from Massey University and a Master of Science with First class Honours in Speech Language Sciences from the University of Canterbury. With over 10 years experience I have had the privilege of working with a number of individuals and their families to achieve their goals. I have significant experience working with children with special needs, complex communication difficulties and speech sounds disorders.

Over the years I have remained a ‘life-long learner’ by continuing with various professional developments around Autism, complex communication difficulties, literacy, speech sound disorders, Makaton, Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) systems. I value ongoing learning as at Speech4all we maintain and offer the highest quality of Speech Language Therapy services

Throughout my experience I have had the opportunities to develop my skills and knowledge in a range of areas and enjoy working directly with clients, offering supervision for other SLT’s and running professional development workshops for education providers and families. For some families I am able to do a mix of one-on-one therapy sessions and coaching workshops for parents to provide the best service possible for the individual

Megan King (Speech Language Therapist)

I am a New Zealand Trained Speech Language Therapy, with a Bachelor of Speech and Language Therapy from Massey University. I am approaching ten years of practice, with experience in a wide range of contexts. I have been lucky enough to work with a wide range of children and adolescents, in both the public sector and privately more recently. This experience has helped develop a strong passion for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, complex communication difficulties and speech sound disorders

I have been working in the private sector for the last three years and have grown in confidence and skill in this time. Working privately, I believe that it is my role to support children and their families to have a ‘tool-box’ of strategies and skills to ensure that communication is successful in many different situations. Each child and their family is individual, and I pride myself on building unique and personalized intervention for every child I support. Language and literacy skills empower success in life. It is my job as a speech-language therapist to help them find that voice

Over the years, I have gained experience in a number of areas including; articulation and phonology delays/disorders, Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), voice disorders, stuttering, children with ASD and literacy development. I hold my Communication Assistive Technology (CAT-Level 1) accreditation

I am passionate and dedicated to providing a fun and holistic service, where I will assess your child, set individualized goals, deliver engaging and holistic therapy, and will share my tips and tricks with you, to ensure they develop into a strong and effective communicator

Angel Tong (Speech Language Therapist for Chit-Chat4all groups)

I recently received my Bachelor of Speech and Language Therapy with Honours from Massey University. I am currently running the social groups, Chit-Chat4all, for young teens and young adults on Saturdays. On the weekdays, I am working as a Speech and Language Therapist for a special school in Auckland. I thoroughly enjoy working with families and individuals of all ages to help them reach their communication goals and improve quality of life

My clinical experience includes working in private practice, special schools, homes, and early childhood centres. I have also performed diagnosis and treatment in the areas of articulation/phonological processing, receptive/expressive and pragmatic language, and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). I am dedicated to providing a supported environment and fostering meaningful interactions to encourage learning of new skills and to enhance overall communication for individuals and families

In my free time, I love to spend time with family and friends, cook or go to the park
