Hattie Buggey – Lead 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.
