I am an Independent Specialist Speech & Language Therapist working in East Sussex with children and young people predominantly upto the age of 19 years. I qualified as a speech & language therapist in 1998 and worked in the NHS for over 14 years, and the Local Educational Authority for 5 years.
I am currently working independently and am available for sessions throughout the week, either at the child or young person's home, their preschool, school or educational setting, and at other facilities.
I have a wide range of experience working with children and young people of all ages, their families, their network of professions.
I offer assessment and treatment to children and young people between 4 -19 years with a wide spectrum of communication and learning needs and specialise in enabling and supporting children and young people to access their learning environments.My specific areas of interest include:
- anxiety disorders
- attachment difficulties/disorder
- autistic spectrum disorder
- language delay and disorder
- speech sound difficulties
- developmental delay
- Medical Legal Work including SENDIST Tribunal and Youth Offending Referral Order assessment
- Training for all staff
I have worked alongside Nurture Group and THRIVE ftc practitioners.
I am always available to offer advice, and will endeavour to provide an assessment at short notice.. Availability for therapy would be dependent on where therapy would be provided and the frequency of input required.
