LSLS Cert. AVT, B.Ed (Hons), Adv Post.Grad Dip HI

Estelle's career in working with hearing loss and speech development began under personal circumstances. Her son, Nathan, contracted meningitis when he was one, and lost his hearing as a result. Despite being told that Nathan would not be able to develop speech, Estelle believed there must be a way. 

So Estelle, who already had a career as a primary school teacher, went to University and gained a Masters in Hearing Impairment and Speech Development so she could teach her son to talk. She later certified as an Auditory Verbal Therapist and over the past 14 years has coached hundreds of parents to develop their children’s listening, talking and social skills at the Hearing House in New Zealand.  

In September 2017 Estelle moved to the UK and joined the team of Auditory Verbal therapists at Auditory Verbal UK. 

As part of her role at AVUK, Estelle sees families for therapy and works with our family support team to develop our programme available for families. She also delivers presentations and training for families; organisations and health and education professionals across the UK.  

Estelle works four days a week from our London and Bicester centers.
