Speech and Language Therapist

Amy Kallenbach

Amy is a Speech and Language Therapist with a Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology. She has completed the PROMPT Introduction Course which is a very useful therapy tool when working with children with speech and praxis problems. In addition, she has recently extended her training into dysphagia and feeding and has completed a Dysphagia for Speech-Language Therapists module through The University of Auckland (July 2020) and the SOFFI full course (Supporting Oral Feeding in Fragile Infant-November 2021).

Amy is originally from Johannesburg and recently moved to the beautiful city of Cape Town in 2021. She is warm, friendly, and deeply grateful that she gets to wake up each morning to not only share her knowledge and passion about paediatric speech-language therapy but also to learn from the wonderful children and parents/caregivers she meets. She believes that acceptance, mutual respect, and teamwork are the essence of any good, collaborative relationship and are crucial in the therapeutic environment between therapist, child, and parent/caregiver.
