Madeleine Machin
Early Childhood Family Support Specialist

My name is Madeleine and I’m new to the team at Peninsula Speech Plus. I provide a service that compliments the existing team, supporting children and families according to their unique set of needs and circumstances.
I have completed an Early Childhood degree and a Master of Counselling, both at Monash University. Along with the extensive knowledge gained through study and professional development, I have learnt
so much from the families that I have worked with, over many years. Working with a person-centered approach, my role offers both an educative and supportive service for both children and families.
The parents and carers I support can sometimes feel overwhelmed with an overload of information. They may also experience stress advocating for the needs of the children in their care, and use my service to put a plan in place.

I work with families in a range of settings including: in person at Peninsula Speech Plus (Mornington, Frankston and Dromana sites), home visits, in education settings (School, Kinder, Child Care), in community or via telehealth.
