We are looking for an enthusiastic Band 5/early Band 6 level Speech and Language Therapist to work as part of our Therapy team in our Independent Specialist setting ( age range 7 to 18 years)

This post would suit an individual who already has experience of working as a paediatric therapist, and has experience of working in a school setting, specifically with children diagnosed with expressive and receptive language difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorders and/or complex developmental trauma needs. Interest and/or experience in developing social-emotional skills in children as a special interest area is essential.

You will work in close partnership with our class teachers, pastoral team, Occupational Therapists, Educational Psychologist and families/carers to help the pupils reach their full potential.

Main responsibilities

• To manage a caseload of children with a range of speech, language and communication needs relating to early life history, ASD and other conditions
• To complete comprehensive assessments for each pupil on your caseload in order to determine their individual speech, language and communication needs
• To plan, deliver and evaluate 1:1 and group evidence based therapy programmes to develop skills in receptive/expressive spoken language, attention and listening, social communication and other areas where appropriate
• To develop effective working relationships with school staff and liaise regularly regarding implementation of programmes and strategies across the school environment.
Essential Criteria
• HCPC registered Speech and Language Therapist

At Beech Lodge building relationships is key to what we do. Our therapists are very much part of the whole school team and although you would mainly be working one to one and in group situations, you would be fully involved in the day to day life of the school and get to know all of the children even if you do not work directly with them.

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to safeguarding and promoting children’s welfare. This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and is subject to enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks.
