Specialist Speech and Language Therapist for preschool aged children (0-5yrs)

I have over 7 years experience working with preschool aged children in the National Health Service. I work with children who have a variety of communication difficulties e.g. language delay, global developmental delay, language disorder, learning difficulties, unclear speech and a variety of genetic syndromes. My specialist area is with children who have social communication and behavioural difficulties and have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I have also worked as part of a multidisciplinary team for diagnosing ASD which involves joint assessments and observations with a Consultant Paediatrician, Consultant Psychiatrist and/or Psychologist.
