“Communication is the big picture and everyone deserves a voice”

Hello & Nice to meet you!

I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and an Alternative & Augmentative Communication (AAC) enthusiast.

I have worked with children and young adults with Autism and other neurodivergent individuals since 2008 and am passionate about facilitating the process of authentic connection and communication.

License and Professional Affiliation

Licensed by Rehabilitation Council of India (CRR No. A72987) and affiliated to the Indian Speech & Hearing Association as a Lifetime member (L11071366)


I have worked over 13 years in various paediatric multidisciplinary centres in India as a paediatric SLP providing one to one and group therapy services and as a tele-SLP in the recent years. My international work experience includes working in the U.K with children’s charity organisations and mainstream primary public school.

I am currently based in Bangalore, India and offer online sessions, conduct professional workshops and collaborate with inclusive organisations to cater to children with complex communication needs.

Work Approach

My work has evolved into a neurodiversity-affirming practice which takes into account the latest and cutting edge research on autism & other neurodivergence. I am not in the business of fixing or providing “treatment” as children with diagnoses are not defective. A “therapeutic” approach lays importance on radical acceptance, understanding the sensory & neurological differences in children, providing appropriate accommodations and support to help them be their functional best. Whilst speech is a popular and an easy means of communication, providing access to Alternative & Augmentative forms of Communication (AAC) to help children communicate has opened up a world of possibilities for both non-speaking and partially speaking individuals.

“I think of the parenting journey, especially that of neurodivergent children as a ‘sādhana’, a slow, challenging and a contemplative journey, adapting and evolving into a new normal of its own kind. I am here, a speck of a soul wanting to splash some really small and big waves of support your way”!
