· Cerebral Palsy
· Developmental Delay
· Brain Injury
· Down’s syndrome
· Other genetic conditions, and children with no formal diagnosis.
We are seeking to appoint a Senior Specialist Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist to lead our team. The successful candidate will have line management experience and of using a range of interventions and strategies to support complex communication needs of children with learning disabilities and profound and multiple learning disabilities.
