My Aim

I work to support children and young people with communication needs to achieve their academic, social and personal potential. I help young people who have communication difficulties to still do well at school, aspire to be their best, and take part in society. I also believe that children and young people make better progress when they enjoy what they do, and when everyone around them is fully supported to help them achieve. So I also strive to make therapy fun!

Teamwork 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻You say, ‘Speech Pathologist, I say Speech and Language Therapist.’ All over the world we have different systems for supporting children and young people with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). Whatever the system, children and young people with DLD need access to specialist assessment and support. The assessment helps to pinpoint the individuals’ strengths and challenges. Then to support a child or young person with DLD it needs a team: families, teachers, teaching assistants, Speech Pathologists/ Speech and Language Therapist and other professionals too.By providing support and working as a team we can achieve the best outcomes for all with Developmental Language Disorder. That’s what they all deserve.Developmental Language Disorder Day, October 15th 2021#ThinkLanguage #ThinkDLDFind out more at radld.orgYou can donate to us via the ‘donate’ button on the home page. ...
