About Me

My experience and training

As an experienced therapist have worked with children who have a range of speech and language difficulties. 

Since qualifying in 2002 I worked for a number of years in several specialist units for children on the Autistic Spectrum and Asperger’s as well as working in special schools for complex children.  I have also supported children in the community (homes and clinics) as well as mainstream settings providing a service for children with speech and language difficulties and hearing impairment.  Working closely with parents and teaching staff is important to me and key to my work.

I have strong links with the local community and serve as a Foundation Governor at my local Junior school, and have previously run the local ABC toddler group in Busbridge church.
