Conducting Multi-disciplinary assessments
Delivering training to parents, Health Visitors or nursery/school staff
Supporting and line-managing less experienced members of the team
Organising and co-ordinating a small team

Regular supervision with your designated experienced Speech and Language Therapist
A rolling programme of in-house training running across Surrey to update your knowledge and skills throughout the year (including ‘ASD diagnosis’, ‘Stammering’, ‘Using Parent Child Interaction’, ‘Writing EHCPs’, ‘Attention Autism’ (to name but a few).
Access to a well-developed Learning and Development department offering leadership and personal development opportunities to support your personal development plan.
