UNDERSTANDING AND USING LANGUAGE
I am delighted to offer assessment and/or therapy in your home at the weekend. I have fifteen years clinical experience delivering high standards of care to children and adolescents with a range of communication difficulties, including language delay/disorder, speech sound difficulties and social interaction problems. I have a special interest in supporting children of all ages with High Functioning ASD and/or ADHD. I recently trained in ‘The Secret Agent Society-Solving the Mystery of Social Encounters’ intervention program, which currently holds the best evidence in the world for enhancing social skills and emotional resilience.
For the past 12 years I have been working in a service that specialises in supporting children with emotional/behavioural difficulties as well as speech/language problems. In addition to developing speech and language skills, I can empower children’s social communication skills through group intervention and individualised school based programs.
I have a Masters Degree in Child Language Disorders and a keen interest in evidence based practice. I have published in a leading journal article on ADHD and presented research papers nationally and internationally. I have lectured at postgraduate level in TCD and UCD. I am passionate about speech and language therapy and the difference it can make to children’s lives.
