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
