We are delighted to have a new addition to our team: welcome Alison Phipps, speech and language therapist. She has recently qualified from Birmingham City University with a first class degree. However, we have known Alison for many years as she used to work part-time as a speech and language assistant for us running groups in the Tamworth area. She was actually a graphic designer but wanted a change!
Alison is working across the staffordshire area. She has a particular passion for working with children and families with ASD and has already been on the Attention Autism course and is confident with SCERTS, Intensive Interaction, PECS and using visual support. She helped to run Hanen's More Than Words and Elklan's verbal children with ASD.
She will be contributing to the blog soon!
