About Care Speech

Care speech

Mission Statement

Incorporation in 1993, Care Speech & Language Therapy Centre has always prided itself in providing quality and clinically-effective specialist Speech & Language Therapy services to  our clients and their families.

Operating from Ampang for first 17 years, CareSpeech expanded to Megan Avenue II, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng (5 minutes walk from KLCC) in 2010.  The move to a larger premise was necessitated by the need to cater to the increasing number of children requiring for our support services.

In 2024, CareSpeech downsized to a smaller more focused support service, where Ms Jennifer Peters-Lee uses all her acquired skills and vast knowledge, both as a clinician, as well as, a parent to a child with special needs, towards remediating child's communication abilities. She is passionate about parent education and works as a team with parents in forming the therapy approach for their child.

Jennifer Peters - Lee

Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Jennifer Peters - Lee has been a Pediatric Speech & Language Pathologist since 1992. The only child of a planter, she underwent a change of schools that encompassed the length and breadth of the country. The transfers from state to state (dictated by the nature of her father's job) endured her to the multiplicity of Malaysia's rich language and diverse cultural heritage, resulting in her being a fluent bilingual speaker, with an understanding of two other languages.

This early introduction to the complexities of languages prevalent in Malaysia was to be the basis of her first book, Making Chatter Matter: Understanding Language Impairment within a Multilingual Environment, officially launched in December 2006. The book, though written for a niche market, has been successful in attracting readers interested in a deeper understanding of language in multilingual societies. The book is now in it's third printing. The Bahasa Malaysia version of the book was officially launched in July 2007.

On completion of her secondary education in Malaysia, she obtained her B.A. (Hons) in Linguistics and Language Pathology from the University of Reading, United Kingdom, and her Certificate to Practice from the Royal College of Speech-Language Therapists, London, United Kingdom. She obtained her Post-Graduate Diploma in Language and Communication Impairment in Children from the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, and has successfully completed several postgraduate assessment courses offered by ASHA (American Speech Hearing Association) and from Speech Pathology Australia.

In 1992, she embarked on her career at a private peadiratric rehabilitation centre in Kuala Lumpur, where she worked with a spectrum of physically and mentally challenged children. A year and a half later, she opened her own centre, where she is still pursuing her passion for teaching language-impaired children to communicate.

She is a Chartered Member of MASH (Malaysian Association of Speech-Language Hearing), and served on the Executive Board for the initial six years of the Association's existence. She was  the Chairman of Education and Training for the Society for the Severely Mentally Handicapped, Selangor and Federal Territory for several years. She is a member of the Malaysian Autism Advisory Panel (MMAC).
