About Roxy

Roxy

Speech & Language Therapist

I have been working as a speech therapist since 2012. I am experienced with working with children and young people from 2- 25 with a broad range of difficulties including Speech Sound difficulties, Learning Difficulties, Autism, Developmental Language Disorder, Stammering, Selective Mutism, and Hearing Impairment. I have extensive experience working within schools and value working closely with staff and families to ensure that goals are achieved. I have run a number of training packages to schools, professionals, and families. I enjoy this aspect of work; empowering and building confidence in all communication partners. I love my job and am passionate about creating positive and supportive relationships with clients, their families, and their supporting staff.
