A Bit About Me
Hello! My name is Megan!
I have a degree in Speech Pathology and Therapy from Manchester Metropolitan University. I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT).
I have experience within community clinics, language resource units, nurseries and schools as well as client's homes. I have enjoyed working with children of all ages with a range of speech, language and communication difficulties such as speech sound disorders including phonological delay/disorder, receptive and expressive language difficulties, and communication difficulties associated with neurodevelopmental disorders.
I am passionate about supporting children to become effective communicators by working collaboratively with you and your child and any key adults involved in your child's day to day life to become confident in recognising, responding to and building on any attempts of communication. I will work with you to integrate evidence-based speech, language and communication strategies into your child's daily routines and activities in order to maximise their communicative potential. I aim to build strong trusting relationships throughout a child's therapy journey and encourage learning through play by making therapy as fun and engaging as possible.
I believe every child is capable of amazing things and deserves to be listened to regardless of how they communicate. I look forward to working with you and your child to develop strong foundations for communication that open doors to a future of unlimited opportunities and a lifetime of learning.
Outside of work, I love getting cosy with a good book or crime drama, spending time with friends (and dogs!) and being by the sea.
