About Amanda

I am a highly experienced Speech and Language Therapist with a demonstrated history of working with individuals, families, schools and organisations in the UK and Middle East. 

Alongside clinical practice I am a doctorate student with UCL's Institute of Education, researching teachers' knowledge about speech, language, communication and oracy in the classroom. With over 25 years experience in the field of paediatric speech and language therapy, psychology and education I offer an evidence based approach with proven outcomes to children, young people, their families, schools and other organisations.

Previously, I spent ten years working for the NHS in schools and hospitals, in both acute and community settings. During this time, I worked for a number of Primary Care Trusts (now Clinical Commissioning Groups) offering training, supervision and clinical-based research. In 2005, I moved to the Middle East and established a speech and language therapy practice in Bahrain. I continue to visit Bahrain regularly and offer SLUK's Talk Boost training programmes across the region. 

I returned to the UK in 2013 and alongside my clinical practice I undertook a Joint Professional Practice MSc in Speech and Language Therapy: Advanced Practice in Schools with City University and UCL's Institute of Education. 

From a personal perspective I have four sons, three have dyslexia and one has Down syndrome. To find out more about my journey as a parent and professional please read my article published in the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapist's Bulletin magazine.
