My Mission Is To…
Help each child reach their highest potential, using the right blend of empathy, experience, and expertise.
Christine holds a Master of Science Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Teachers College, Columbia University, in New York. Areas of expertise include: language delay, auditory processing difficulties, phonological disorders, developmental verbal apraxia, stuttering, attention deficit disorder, pragmatic communication difficulties, and autism spectrum disorder. Based on her experience in Early Intervention and ongoing training, Christine has a particular interest in early detection of communication difficulties including early diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. She is trained in the use of the ADOS-2, which is considered “the gold standard” for the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Christine is fluent in English and German and proficient in French. She continues to work predominantly in English.
Christine started out as a Speech-Language Pathologist at the Children’s Evaluation & Rehabilitation Center (CERC), at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine where she saw children of all ages with a variety of speech and language difficulties. She worked at The Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, at NYU Medical Center, where she saw neurologically impaired children as well as children with more general diagnosis.
Christine started her training in Early Intervention at the University Settlement Society of New York and continues to see very young children (“Zero To Three”). She has a particular interest in the early diagnosis and treatment of children with pragmatic language difficulties and autism spectrum disorder. She now works in private practice as part of an interdisciplinary team at Centre Trampoline in Geneva.
She has supervised students in clinical settings and provides training for parents of children with special needs. She believes that parents are their child’s best advocate and now offers individual parent consultations as well as parent discussion groups to empower parents to become their personal best in helping their child progress in treatment.
