ABOUT LUCY

I’ve been a speech and language therapist for 8 years. I love my job and find working with children with speech, language and communication needs to be constantly challenging and rewarding. 


I work with children and young people from the ages of 3-17, in their own home or school. I have a special clinical interest in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). I am also experienced in working with children with other speech, language and communication needs (see below).

My training includes PECS, Intensive Interaction, Makaton, Social Thinking, Shape Coding and Lego Therapy. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Speech and Language Therapy from City University, London. I am registered with RCSLT, HCPC and ASLTIP.

I am passionate about creating therapy solutions that are tailored to the individual needs of each child. I enjoy getting to know each child I work with, establishing a rapport and working collaboratively with them and with families to set priority areas for therapy.
