Overview

Debbie has had a long career working with children and adolescents as a Speech and Language Pathologist. Her job has taken her around the world where she has had extensive experiences with supporting a wide range of people with speech, language and communication needs. In Scotland, Debbie had a lead role in an Autism Diagnostic Team in the North of Glasgow. Debbie has always enjoyed working closely with children and their families to help them find the best ways to enhance language and communication, as these skills are the building blocks to later social and educational success and literacy acquisition. Debbie is skilled at looking at the needs, motivations and interests for each client to find the way forward for each family. There is no one approach that fits all and Debbie assesses and plans intervention that best supports your child or young person.
