Since then Jerilee has worked with both children and adults with varied speech and communication disorders.
Over the years, Jerilee has worked with a lot of young children with motor speech disorders. The abundance of these cases is what urged her to undergo training in the PROMPT approach in 2007. She has been using PROMPT with a wide range of clients.
Along with her colleagues, she recently set-up her own practice at THINKids in Quezon City, Metro Manila where she sees the children with a range of needs including those diagnosed with Autism, language disorders and delay, specific language impairments, Down Syndrome and motor speech disorders.
