Marketing Better Bigger Faster

I specialize in working with the paediatric population with language delay or deviancy, articulation and/or feeding issues. I have also worked with adults with neuro-communication disorders and dysphagia and have completed my dissertation in creating a treatment manual for adults who have word-finding difficulties.

After working with various therapists over the years, I realised the importance of using a holistic approach for the treatment provided and sharing this form of approach with other therapists for professional development. I have developed an online portal called “Uncleft” wherein experts from various fields share their expertise on a topic which in turn will help train professionals and students. 


I take keen interest in observing and learning best practices of experienced therapists and then applying them in my own therapy. 

I believe that when we work on something continually and “be at it” (keep practising it), then over time,  not only do we end up achieving our goals, but surpassing them.

I have completed my Bachelors in Audiology and Speech-Language pathology from Topiwala National medical college (Nair hospital) followed with a Master's degree in Audiology and Speech-language Pathology from Manipal University. I am certified by the Rehab Council of India and hold a Clinical Competence Certificate (CCC-SLP) from ASHA (American Speech and Hearing Association). I have also received training in Oral Placement Therapy and Makaton.
