Ross Hobart – Lead Speech & Language Therapist
I have been working with children and young people in a variety of educational settings for over 10 years. As a dual-trained teacher and speech and language therapist I benefit from experience supporting children both in and out of the classroom. My aim is always to achieve the very best learning opportunities for our students. This is about creating an environment where every adult is skilled to support our students’ wellbeing and communication, and where every student is empowered to reach their full potential. Here at the St Marylebone CE Bridge School, we seek to develop the students’ communication skills so they can become happy, independent and successful adults.
Hattie Buggey – Speech & Language Therapist
I am a speech and language therapist with a specialism in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I am passionate about supporting students with speech, language and communication needs to reach their social and educational potential. I lead the intervention and support for students with ASD, especially around diagnosis awareness, social communication skills and structured teaching approaches. I also work closely with students with Language Disorder, Selective Mutism and Speech Sound Disorders.
I am a speech and language therapist with a background in music performance.
I enjoy working closely with students to learn about their interests and what motivates them,in order to develop creative interventions that are client-centred as well as evidence-based. I also believe in taking a holistic approach in supporting students to achieve their full potential both in education and life outside school. I have a special interest in finding creative ways to support students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Developmental Language Disorder.
At the St Marylebone CE Bridge School we work closely with other professionals to ensure our students access additional input if needed.
Currently the school is working with professionals to provide access to Art Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Music Therapy, Therapeutic Horse-Riding, Creative Mentoring, Physiotherapy, School Nursing, and Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services.
