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 have experience in the assessment, treatment and support of children with a range of communication challenges; including receptive and expressive language disorders, speech disorders, language delay, cognitive impairment, cleft palate, hearing impairment, neurological disorders, selective mutism, social communication disorders, and autism. I have a particular interest in working with children with speech difficulties and autistic spectrum condition. I enjoy working on an individual, small group or whole-class bases, as well as working alongside parents and other professionals.
