Speech and Language Therapist
I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2011 and have worked in specialist posts since then. My initial work was with children and adults with Autism. I have subsequently worked at Gibside School since 2014. I deliver assessment and therapy interventions across school, with individuals, groups and as part of whole class support. I have received formal training in PECS, Makaton, Intensive Interaction, Elklan Training – Speech and Language Support for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Social Stories, SCERTS, Lego based Therapy and Phonological Awareness. I have also delivered a wide range of training to parents and professionals since starting my Speech and Language Therapy career.
