What is a Speech and Language Therapist?

A Speech and Language Therapist works with individuals who have difficulties communicating. This includes problems with comprehension (understanding what is said), expressive language (talking) and using communication to socialise appropriately. A Speech and Language Therapist also supports parents and families and works closely with other professionals.

I work closely with other speech and language therapists in the Independent sector and the NHS.

'Working in Harmony' with other therapists and professionals is an essential part of my practice.
