Speech and Language Therapist
Having worked in Metropole over the last 5 years as part of an external service, being part of the inclusion team in the school for over 1.5 years has allowed me to support a wider range of students, and support teachers and families with a holistic and integrated approach. My experience includes working with a wide range of students with speech, language and communication needs such as those with: Autistic spectrum disorders and/or social communication difficulties, hearing impairments, developmental syndromes, dysfluent speech, selective mutism, AAC, and/or speech and language delay/disorder. To support my work, I have been trained in using: SCERTS, PECS, Elklan, Makaton and Social Thinking, and I have worked as an ABA Tutor and closely with BCBAs and OTs. I am well experienced in training and presenting to others and I pride myself on building professional relationships with students, teachers and families I work with.
As well as obtaining Distinction for a MSc. in Speech and Language Therapy from the University of Reading, UK, I have a BSc. Degree in Psychology, also from the University of Reading, UK.
