Dr Kerianne Druker

Congratulations on taking the time to find out how you can support your child to exceed their potential!

“Timing can be crucial in early development. My goal is to strengthen children’s communication and learning skills during their critical development years so that they can succeed emotionally, socially, and academically - now and into the future.”

You might be finding that your child is not communicating like other children their age, is falling behind at school, or just not quite fitting in. It is really important to investigate and understand the root of these problems, to identify if these are normal or need to be addressed straight away.

We know of too many parents and educators who have struggled to navigate this journey, after receiving confusing and often contradictory advice.

We have worked with hundreds of children to identify the underlying contributing factors to their communication and/or learning difficulties, to ensure an effective management plan is developed, their weaknesses are overcome, and their quality of life is enhanced.

I started Exceed with the vision of bridging the gap between research and clinical practice. A large proportion of my career has involved researching in the areas of early intervention, which continues to underpin my intervention approach and philosophy.

I have a PhD in the area of childhood stuttering disorders, specialising in children who have not responded to typical stuttering treatment. I have attended and presented at research conferences worldwide, and have several research publications. I am a Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist and member of Speech Pathology Australia.
