Additional Information
My name is Gabriele Bianco and I am an Italian Speech and Language Therapist. I graduated as a speech therapist in 2008 from the University of Padua (IT). After graduating, I continued my studies at Pontificial University in Salamanca (ES), where I attended a post-graduate clinical course which helped me to expand both my theoretical and practical skills in developmental language, speech and literacy disorders. Soon after, I travelled to Brisbane (AU) where I spent four months as an observer in a private Speech Pathology Clinic. From 2010 to 2013 I worked as an SLT in the Child Neuropsychiatry Departments of two Italian public hospitals (first in Bergamo, then in Brescia), treating children aged 0-14 affected by speech/ /language/literacy/mathematics/swallowing/communication disorders and constantly collaborating with local pre- and primary schools. Subsequently, in September 2013, I received a 2-year scholarship for a full-time research-oriented Master's degree in Clinical Linguistics (EMCL) at the Universities of Groningen (NL), Potsdam (DE) and the University of Eastern Finland. Finally, from March to August 2015, I worked on my Master's Thesis (Dynamic Assessment of vocabulary, sentence structure and phonology in combination with other measures as a screening tool for the identification of Specific Language Impairment in early Italian second language learners) in collaboration with City University of London. I currently work as a speech therapist with bilingual children affected by language and literacy disorders, within and outside pre- and primary school settings. I also work with children and adults who stutter.
In the past 2 years, I have run the following Hanen Programs:
