Her practice is using everyday routine, parent and child interaction models and visuals to help develop context-based language that can help parents to help their children’s language development.
Working with her autistic daughter has inspired Dipaley to help other parents and children in similar circumstances. Using her skills as a professional and a mother she is able to empower parents/caregivers on the best way they can help their children.
Being a parent has taught her so much but mostly the understanding that as parents it is our responsibility to ensure that our children develop the necessary life skills to become young confident people and in doing so a big part of this is being able to recognise when ‘you’ as a parent need help to ensure all their needs are fully met
