About Monica Hopkins
With a career spanning more than 20 years, Monica has extensive experience as a generalist speech pathologist in community health and inpatient settings. She has also worked in a number of roles in health including as a senior clinician, and in leadership and management roles.
Monica enjoys working with children who have speech sound disorders, early communication difficulties, preschool language, stuttering and feeding difficulties. She has completed further training in Hanen It Takes Two to Talk and the SOS approach to feeding.
With two two daughters of her own, Monica understands the importance of parent involvement and believes therapy needs to be practical and fun to be effective in busy family life.
I love helping children and their families and find it rewarding to see children achieve their communication goals – and we get to play games and have a lot of fun along the way!
The team at A Growing Understanding are dedicated to providing high quality services to clients. The staff are highly experienced, supportive and friendly and it is a pleasure to come to work every day and see their smiling faces.
