Speech and Language Therapist

Her areas of specialism include speech sound delay and disorder, verbal dyspraxia, voice disorders in children, Cleft Palate and associated speech sound development, developmental language disorder and auditory memory difficulties.
Nicola has undertaken specialist postgraduate training in the following: The Nuffield Speech Sound Dyspraxia Programme, Cleft Palate and Complex Craniofacial Conditions (at Great Ormond Street Hospital, GOSH), Voice Disorders in Children and Young People (GOSH), Palin Parent Child Interaction (Palin PCI) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), to name but a few.
Nicola holds a PGDip Hons BSc in Speech and Language Therapy from City University and is a member of The Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP, www.asltip.com). She is HPC registered (www.hcpc-uk.org).
Nicola is a Mum of two children, who both attend local mainstream schools in Brentwood, providing her with links into local educational settings and SENCo support.
