I am a fully qualified registered Independent Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist from North London. I have extensive experience working with pre-school, school aged and secondary aged children for both the NHS and privately.
I have worked in a variety of settings with a range of different developmental needs.
This varies from children with:
- Complex needs including Autism, Down’s syndrome, Cerebral Palsy etc
- Severe learning difficulties
- Mild/moderate learning difficulties
- Speech disorders/delays
- Language disorders/delays
- Specific Language Impairment
- Social Skills
- Higher level language difficulties
- Auditory memory difficulties
- Hearing Impairments
- Phonological awareness difficulties
- Voice difficulties
I value the importance of tailoring therapy plans to meet individual needs. In doing so, I use a number of different communication methods including Makaton signing and symbol use. To ensure I access a variety of new and innovative training courses, my patients will only receive the most up to date and effective therapies. Examples of this include the implementation of colourful semantics to encourage language development and a variety of techniques to help resolve stammering. I use TEACCH methods throughout therapies yet always guarantee that each session is exciting and motivating.
I work hard to establish meaningful and supportive relationships not only with the children I work with but also with their parents and school staff in order to provide knowledge and training on how best to support their children, in all environments. I strongly believe in collaborative working with parents and other professions to provide the best opportunities for my patients to reach their full potentials.
I am registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT), the Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP) and with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
