Neryl has worked as a paediatric speech pathologist for over 30 years, the last 17 of these within services supporting families with children who have hearing loss. She has worked in school-based services including oral and Auslan settings, preschool services, and since 2008 in telepractice through RIDBC Teleschool. She completed a Graduate Certificate in Education with an emphasis on auditory-verbal therapy, and attained her Listening and Spoken Language certification with the AG Bell Academy in 2013. She has presented at professional development events at RIDBC, run courses for families on the RIDBC Teleschool service, and mentored staff in their LSLS certification.

Neryl believes that helping to empower families with effective communication is a privileged career; because communication is fundamental to nurturing strong relationships and effective learners.
