Vince has practised in the eastern suburbs for over 25 years spending ten years as Chief Speech Pathologist at the Box Hill Hospital before working full time in his private practice. Over the years, Vince has seen thousands of clients ranging from toddlers to the elderly to support a range of speech, language, voice and fluency difficulties. He has been involved in both individual and group therapy programs as well as intensive programs. Current areas of interest include stuttering and Oro-Facial Myology (Tongue Thrust Therapy).
Vince was the Founder and Chair Person of the Stuttering Interest Group for more than eight years and is trained to deliver the Lidcombe Program: a world-renowned treatment for children’s stuttering difficulties. He has extensive knowledge and experience treating children, adolescence, young and older adults who experience stuttering difficulties and the impact this may have on their day-to-day lives. Vince’s sessions with younger children are fun, vibrant and practical and encourage parental involvement at all times. Vince is also a trained Oro-Facial Myologist, and in combination with orthodontists and specialist dentists, he can help to reduce habitual thumb-sucking, open mouth postures and tongue thrusting which may be contributing to misaligned teeth. Vince has been carrying out Oro-Facial Myology treatment for more than twenty years.
Vince is often called upon to provide secondary opinions in complex diagnostic cases and offers mentoring services for other speech pathologists registered with Speech Pathology Australia. Vince strongly believes every individual has the right to communicate as effectively as possible.
