Speech Therapy Practice

The Speech Studio


Welcome to The Speech Studio.

My name is Melissa Browne, the owner of The Speech Studio, a speech therapy practice in Enschede, The Netherlands. 

I obtained my speech therapy degree from Windesheim University of Applied Sciences. After graduation, I gained work experience in private practices here in the Netherlands and a hospital abroad. My post-graduate studies included several courses that furthered my knowledge of speech therapy. 

I am a member of the Dutch Association of Speech Therapists (NVLF); also I am in the Quality Registry for Allied Medical Professionals (Kwaliteitsregister Paramedici). 

My work interest focuses on multilingualism. The reason for this lies in my own multilingual upbringing. My native language is Papiamentu, a language spoken in The Dutch Caribbean. I am also fluent in Dutch, English and Spanish. 

To cater more to multilingual clients, I joined two groups: a speech therapy quality group focusing on multilingual speech therapy and the Dutch Foundation for Multilingual Speech Therapy (SMLN).   

Besides my profession as a speech therapist, I currently teach Dutch as a second language to expats and immigrants.

Feel free to contact me for further information or questions.
