About

Andria Calicchio graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa, in 2008. Soon after graduating, she worked for a government hospital in South Africa as part of her community service, where she set up both a NICU feeding clinic and audiology out-patient clinic.  

After working within a private practice in South Africa for 2 years, where she saw both paediatric and adult patients, she decided to move to Dubai. Andria worked at a private medical centre in Dubai for 4 years, focusing on paediatrics and school-based therapy. She has provided one to one sessions, group sessions as well as multi-disciplinary sessions, and classroom-based activities. She has experience in oral-motor therapy, stuttering therapy, auditory processing therapy, visual-auditory based therapy for hearing impaired, and language therapy. She is also certified in interactive metronome and completed levels 1 – 3 of the Orton Gillingham dyslexia program.

Andria’s main focus and passion are on early intervention therapy and inclusion of children with learning difficulties and developmental disorders within mainstream schools. She previously held a position of Head of Schools in which she oversaw all therapy-based interventions within schools, assisted schools with the training of staff and helped develop therapy within mainstream schools within Dubai. Andria’s focus was also on training both teachers and parents in childhood disorders, as well as provided workshops where needed.

Andria bases all therapy and intervention within the importance of the patient’s triad within their life: school/work/environment, family and therapy. She strongly feels that all aspects need to work together in order to fully assist any patient. With a passion for inclusion, Andria is currently completing her masters in inclusive education in Dubai schools, focusing on early years and hearing-impaired learners.

Andria is really fantastic with kids. She has a fantastic bedside manner and made my daughter feel comfortable and respected. She has a great way of enticing kids into doing tasks, even though my daughter wa shy - we were encouraged to do them together. Her passion is so evident in her solutions. So grateful to have found her.
