Elaine is a therapist with double degrees and clinical experiences in Physiotherapy and Speech Pathology. The passion for speech pathology drove Elaine into studying a four-year course of Speech Pathology at Flinders University in Australia. The sound theoretical and practical education system has equipped Elaine with advanced skills and solid knowledge in speech pathology. Furthermore, being exposed herself in diverse and challenging clinical practices in Australia has helped Elaine become a highly competent and professional speech pathologist. Elaine’s clinical experiences in Australia include:

As many children with speech and language difficulties in Taiwan were not able to receive prompt assessment and treatment due to the shortage of speech pathologists, Elaine decided to come back to her hometown and contribute what she has learnt to the society.
