Since qualifying 13 years ago, I have worked with pre-school and school aged children both within the NHS and independently as a private therapist. My experience has been gained through working in a range of mainstream and special schools across London and Oxfordshire.
I have a wide range of experience treating mainstream SLT-related issues, such as language disorders, dyspraxia, speech sound difficulties and autism. This work has included working in primary and secondary special needs schools treating children with a range of complex speech and language needs. Therapy approaches used include Intensive Interaction, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), object/photo/symbol choices and Makaton signing.
I have developed an expertise in working with children and teenagers who stammer. Therapy techniques used include Lidcombe Therapy and Palin Parent Interaction Therapy as well as speech strategies and cognitive therapy approaches.
I also offer social communication / ASD group therapy sessions (e.g. Zones of Regulation and Lego Therapy) as well as providing training to staff in schools.
