19 Mar Website Launch
Welcome to my first blog which celebrates the launch of my website. I am so excited to be starting my journey as an Independent Speech and Language Therapist following 19 years of service to the NHS in Northamptonshire. Thank you for your interest in my website. I hope that my passion for working with young children shines through. I love my job and feel privileged to work with families and professionals to help to improve the communication skills of the children that I meet.
I truly believe that parents and professionals need to work together to ensure that everyone understands a child’s speech, language and communication needs and feels confident in their role in supporting a child to make progress. I am actively maintaining links with my colleagues in health and education as well as establishing new relationships with other professionals to enhance the services I can provide.
I am part of a network of other Independent Speech and Language Therapists locally which is essential for continued professional development opportunities and peer supervision.
I am delighted that Pen Green Centre for Children and Their Families has asked me to join their team as a co-opted governor; using my skills as a Speech and Language Therapist to help to influence decisions about speech, language and communication support for families in Corby. I am excited to learn new skills and be part of a wider team of parents and colleagues from a variety of professions.
I am having my business cards printed soon and will be making appointments to visit local educational settings and health centres to drop off some information and to introduce myself. Please get in touch if you would like me to call in or if you are a parent seeking advice about your child. I am always happy to talk! Thank you for reading my blog. Karen
