Divya Sachdev

After graduating from Sydney University's Cumberland College of Health Sciences, Divya has worked for more than 10 years with children across a wide variety of speech therapy settings including some of Sydney’s main teaching hospitals (St George Hospital, Liverpool Hospital, and Canterbury Hospital), community health care centres, schools and private clinics. Divya has also worked with adults after they have acquired a brain injury or suffered a stroke. 

Divya enjoys working with children and their families and gains enormous joy in helping children develop their full communication potential. Divya's varied experience in working with children from diverse backgrounds has also contributed to her ability to relate warmly with all the families she has worked with and develop communication goals in close collaboration with parents. 

Divya has gained extensive paediatric clinical experience and specialises in working with children of all ages, particularly children who are experiencing pronunciation, language, speech or stuttering difficulties. Divya is experienced in using the Lidcombe program to help many children she has worked with, achieve stutter-free speech. She has also been trained in PROMPT(c) Introduction to Therapy Technique and advanced training in Bridging PROMPT Technique to Intervention. 

Divya also has an interest and experience in working with children who have autism spectrum disorder. She is also experienced in assessing and assisting children with reading and spelling challenges.
