News – September

From September we will welcome three new members of staff, two Occupational Therapist and a Speech and Language Therapist. We hope that this will help to reduce our waiting times and we will now be booking appointments in with them.

We will start by introducing Helen, our Speech Therapist. She will initially only be available for joint OT and SALT assessments as well as the Multi professional Trauma and sensory assessment packages. Additionally Helen will provide some school commissions support and individual EHCP therapy where appropriate to her expertise. Areas that Helen specialises in and can support include:

Types of speech, language and communication need (SLCN) supported:
Speech sound delays and disorders
Stammering (dysfluency)
Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
Language Disorder associated with other conditions (such as Autistic Spectrum Conditions)
Social Communication and Interaction
Communication difficulties associated with social, emotional, behavioural or mental health needs (SEMH)
