Senior Speech & Language Therapy Assistant

I am a speech and language therapy assistant and have 24 years of experience working with children aged 2 to 12.

I combine my work for Hegarty Therapy with my role as a Senior Speech and Language Therapy Assistant in the NHS working in partnership with parents, carers, schools, and nurseries to support each child’s communication development.

I offer face to face sessions in your home, school or nursery as well as telehealth sessions via video link.  I work on targets identified by therapists and can also provide resources to meet your child’s individual needs.
