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 with students of all ages to develop their speech, language and communication skills. I have a particular interest in supporting students with social communication difficulties, including Autism Spectrum Disorder.
One way I am able to support students is working directly with teachers and families. I value this as part of my role because I can support understanding and awareness of what can support each student.
I am passionate about evidence-based practice and about delivering interventions that are motivating for students with a diverse range of speech, language and communication needs.
I am a Speech and Language Therapist with experience working with children and young adults in a variety of clinical settings.
My clinical interests and experience include Autism Spectrum Disorder; Hearing Impairment, Developmental Language Delay; Social Communication difficulties; using high and low tech communication aids and supporting students with a range of neurological conditions affecting speech, language and communication skills.
I am passionate about using different intervention approaches to support students to communicate, in order to participate in daily life and maintain good relationships, health and wellbeing.
