Anna Taylor (Speech and Language Specialist)

My passion for working with children with speech and language difficulties in schools began when I joined the NEMLDC as a Speech Pathologist over a decade ago. I have recently joined the team at MultiLit, and am delighted to continue my connection with the NEMLDC as a Community Representative on the School Board.

To the Board I bring extensive experience in the delivery of speech pathology services in an educational context. I have ongoing interests in oral language and literacy development.  Having worked closely with children with Developmental Language Disorder for many years, I understand the importance of continued, high quality intervention and support.

I believe that when families, schools and communities work together children do better and are happier at school. As a Community Representative on the Board, I endeavour to strengthen the school’s capacity to best meet the learning and social needs of students.

Moones Mohebati (West Morley) – I am a mother to a son, who is currently attending year 1, his 3rd & final year at the LDC in West Morley. I have always been involved with our local community, whether it’s being part of the committees or working with children. I am passionate about ensuring children reach their potential, and that both parents and the community work together to nurture them to make this happen. “Children are the most precious treasure a community can possess, for in them are the promise and guarantee of the future.”

I love travelling, watching movies, and spending time with family.
