I am a Speech & Language Therapist working with the Community Learning Disabilities Team. I have worked with children and adults with learning disabilities and/or autism since qualifying as an SLT in 2012. I previously worked in special schools and a day service with adults. I have been with the Community Learning Disability Team since 2014. As a Speech & Language Therapy team we provide communication assessments and eating & drinking assessments to service users with a learning disability. A large part of this role involves working with and training staff teams and carers to support the person. I have a particular interest in the areas of social skills; challenging behaviour and dementia.
Qualifications: BSc Honours in Speech & Language Sciences. Member of HCPC and RCSLT.
