Ms. Jayanthi had always wanted to teach and work with children in school setup however, Once she started studying speech pathology she knew helping children communicate was the direction that she wanted to follow. She had started her practice in Manipal Hospital, later moved on to be part of rehabilitative team at Vydehi Medical College,Whitefield Bangalore. She also used to give therapy for the Mentally challenged at Bethany and Army school, She feels that from the first therapy to the hearing impaired children to ultimately working with a variety of kids in the private practice setting has been an honor and enriching experience.
