Hi, I’m Chris Calnan Osborne. I started as a speech pathologist in 2005, after graduating from the University of Qld.
I have a particular interest literacy development, speech sound disorders (including cleft lip/palate) and language development. I am continually improving my knowledge in these areas. I’m fully trained in Nuffield Dyspraxia program and Sounds-Write literacy program. I love working with kids and seeing the huge changes they can achieve.
I am generally a paediatric speech pathologist but do work with older clients, particularly adult literacy difficulties / learn to read.
I did some work for Qld health in Kingaroy and then Dalby, and then in 2008 moved to the Sunshine coast with my husband where we have been ever since, with our three rambunctious little boys.
I have been working for Education Qld since 2008, and have worked with over 27 schools across the Sunshine Coast.
Due to this I am not able to see clients who currently attend Bli Bli State School or the Senior Campus of Nambour State College
I will not take on clients that are out of my scope of practice (eg voice or infant feeding clients).
