We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced speech and language therapist to join our multidisciplinary service working with young people with Autism and associated conditions and their families. MindSenseAbility (MSA) is a specialist therapeutic educational service based in the New Forest. We provide bespoke educational therapeutic programmes, in a variety of environments, to address the needs of young people who find education a challenge. Our service is highly committed to child and family centred care. The speech and language therapy team is a relatively new addition to the service and you will be part of the growth and development of the team.

The role involves:
