Frances Roberts, BA (Hons) MMedsci, MRSCLT, HCPC Reg
I am a highly specialist speech and language therapist with extensive experience working both privately and in the NHS with children from 2-18 years old. I specialise in Autism and complex needs; however I am also able to to provide intervention to children with other speech and language difficulties. Where a child's difficulties are outside of my experience, I am happy to refer you on to other professionals who may be able to help.
I am passionate about providing therapy which is evidence based, individualised, and above all fun and informative for both the child and their parent or caregiver. When working with children who have social communication differences I take a neurodiversity friendly, child centred approach.
The ability to communicate effectively is an essential skill for play, learning, developing relationships and succeeding academically. We know that difficulties with speech and language can impact upon all areas of a child's development; therefore I strongly believe in the importance of early intervention.
I have a Masters in Human Communication Sciences from The University of Sheffield and am registered with HCPC and RCSLT
Cesca Heale BMedSci , MRCSLT, HPCP Reg
I am a specialist speech and language therapist with over 5 years of experience in the NHS working with children and their families to support a wide range of speech, language and communication needs and have in the last few years specialised in early years and complex needs.
I feel therapy is most effective when working jointly as a team with parents/caregivers and when it is fun and engaging for the child. I echo Frances' commitment to a neurodiversity friendly and child centred approach when supporting children with social communication differences.
I have an undergraduate degree in Speech Science from the University of Sheffield and am registered with HCPC and RCSLT.''
