Dr Kylie Smith – Speech Pathologist
Consults: Thursday Mornings
Dr Kylie Smith completed a Bachelor of Speech Pathology at LaTrobe University, and a PhD at the University of Melbourne. With nearly 20 years’ experience she has worked with clients of all ages, with a range of communication disorders. She consults at our clinic as a member of Brenda Carey Speech Pathology; a highly respected and longstanding speech pathology group in Malvern East.
Kylie enjoys the diversity that working as a generalist speech pathologist brings. Typical in her caseload are preschool children who are “late talkers”, children whose speech is difficult to understand or who mispronounce sounds, children who have language skills that appear less developed than their peers, and children, adolescents and adults who stutter. She works collaboratively with her clients and their families to establish meaningful goals for each individual. To this work Kylie also brings her own experiences as a parent of three young children.
When not at Bluff Road Medical, Kylie lectures speech pathology students at the University of Melbourne, and graduate speech pathologists on stuttering and evidence-based treatments. She has written many papers, articles, and blogs related to stuttering, and has been an invited guest on ABC radio. Kylie is available to see clients of all ages on Thursdays from 8.30am – 12.30pm. For any queries or to make an appointment to see Kylie, please contact her receptionist on 9571 5843, or ask Bluff Road Medical reception for one of her business cards.
