Welcome to my store! I have spent 15+ years as a Speech and Language Therapist helping children communicate their 'voice' and supporting them to thrive at school and in developing relationships with others. I love my job because it makes such a positive difference to children's lives. I am also hugely enthusiastic about second language learning (much to my husband's annoyance!) and I have been using my knowledge of linguistics and language learning to raise my 5-year-old son English and French since he turned 1 year. My husband likes to teach about Transformers, Star Wars and Superheroes! Our poor boy needs some middle ground! I have designed and developed a curriculum for preschool programmes in French and Spanish! My daughter is 28 months and has additional support needs so I'm expanding my knowledge in signing and therapy approaches for apraxia of speech.
Fun, motivating, developmentally appropriate! Singing, interactive books, arts and crafts - gorgeous, bright visuals help to keep children engaged too and I spend a lot of time sourcing the right image!
Awarded funds from First Port Social enterprise to develop an app to support early vocabulary development in young children. I am volunteer with Maya's Hope charity who helps children being raised in poverty and disadvantage.
Studied at Queen Margaret University College in Edinburgh University credit in Autism Studies. Completed Quality Improvement Mentoring 9 month training programme in 2015.
