We meet the needs of young people with high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, language & communication difficulties, and specific language difficulties aged 7 to 19 years.
We are looking for a dynamic, flexible and enthusiastic Speech and Language Therapist to join our multi-disciplinary team and work seamlessly with our education staff.
