I am a Highly Specialist (Band 7) Speech and Language Therapist working with children from Preschool to Key Stage 5 (3-19 years) with speech, language and communication impairments.
I specialise in autism and complex communication needs, and have a special interest in speech impairments.
I am based in Reigate and can offer assessment and therapy in the child's home, school or nursery in the East Surrey area.
I will travel anywhere in England to provide assessment for SEND Tribunals.
I offer a friendly, dynamic and sensitive therapy service using a range of evidence-based therapy techniques that can be tailored to suit the needs of you and your child.
I believe in working in partnership with parents to maximise progress and ensure the best outcome for your child, and it is a priority of mine to increase the confidence and motivation of your child so they get the most out of therapy: therapy should be a fun and rewarding experience.

Services to Schools
Therapy – I offer SLT packages to schools to provide regular or occasional input for SEN students including assessment, therapy, social skills groups, reports, attendance at Annual Reviews, joint IEP setting and classroom support.
Training - I provide informal training packages to schools such as ‘Supporting Children with Speech, Language and Social Communication Difficulties’, ‘Social Skills Training’, ‘ASD’, 'Makaton', 'PECS' and 'Intensive Interaction'. Training can be arranged to support the specific training needs of your staff.
I provide assessment and written reports as evidence towards Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunals. I may also be able to attend the tribunal to support you if the Panel will allow this (they do restrict the number of attendees).
I am a member of the Expert Witness Institute (EWI) and the Medico-Legal Special Interest Group for Speech and Language Therapists.
It may be useful to see the child in different settings for assessment, e.g. home and school, especially if social skills, interaction or behaviour are a key factor, or if you are appealing against Part 4 of the Statement.
A minimum of 2 hours will be required for assessment, and up to 4 hours may be required for a full and detailed assessment of your child's needs, especially if they have complex needs.
