Welcome to our website. I am the founder and Senior speech-language pathologist in Words speech therapy. I began my journey as an undergraduate speech and hearing science student at Bangalore University in 2003. I completed four years of academic and clinical training in 2007 and started a two-year master’s degree in speech-language pathology in the same university. I became a master qualified speech-language pathologist in 2009.  

Throughout my career, I have had the honour of collaborating with numerous children and families, addressing a wide spectrum of hearing, speech, language, and communication challenges. My professional journey has led me through some of the premier private hospitals, intervention centres, and schools across Sri Lanka. Additionally, I contribute as a visiting lecturer and research guide for undergraduate speech and hearing science students at the Department of Disability Studies, Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya.

My special interest is early intervention for children with autism and other developmental disabilities. Working in different settings and with a wide range of hearing, speech, language, swallowing difficulties had given me extensive knowledge and experience. Words speech therapy results from my motivation and determination towards providing quality and innovative speech therapy services to children in Sri Lanka. 

I am currently advancing my academic and professional expertise by pursuing a PhD in Speech-Language Therapy. My research is deeply ingrained in exploring child language, decolonisation, and enhancing clinical practices.

Please take your time to explore our website to discover more about our services. You will find an array of valuable resources about speech-language disorders, alongside practical tips for parents managing speech delays in children. Thank very much for visiting, and we eagerly look forward to supporting you and your family.
