After qualifying as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2011 I have worked for the NHS in London with children and young people aged 0-19 years. I have worked in pre-schools, primary and secondary schools and followed individuals’ journey as they’ve transitioned between each key stage.
I’ve also worked in college settings where I’ve provided a universal environmental approach to embed whole class strategies and have encouraged a total communication approach. I’ve supported teaching staff in modifying their style of communication to meet the abilities of individuals so they can communicate their needs, preferences and feelings to others.
My voluntary experiences in Jersey, Chanel Islands, have allowed me to practice in a very holistic and creative way and I’ve applied this to my own practice to date.
My passion and specialism is Developmental Lanaguage Disorder. I have worked in provisions to provide children and young people with specialist support and seen them grow in their skills and abilities.
I truly feel children and young people need time, support, positivity and reassurance to build on their strengths and this enables them to fulfil their potential and achieve their aspirations!
