April Winstock Speech and Language Therapist in Stanmore, Middlesex

About Me

I am an independent Speech and Language Therapist, specialising in the treatment of children over the age of 12 months who have difficulties with eating, drinking, saliva control and communication difficulties.

I typically see the child in his/her own home/nursery/school.

Each child is assessed by means of a detailed case history and gaining the parents’/carers’ views on their child. I observe the child eating.

Assessment and therapy need to be collaborative; parental/carer and other professionals’ perspectives are always considered. Permission from a child’s parent(s)/carer(s) will be sought before I contact other professionals.

Following assessment, my findings are discussed with (where appropriate) the child and his/her parent(s)/carer(s).

We then plan the most effective way of helping that particular child.

We try out ideas together and as long as the parent(s)/carer(s) are happy, we arrange a follow-up at a mutually agreed interval to enable everyone to try out strategies before reviewing the child’s progress.

My approach is flexible, being child and family centred, so that parent(s)/carer(s) and other staff feel they have the information and skills they need to provide carryover between our sessions.

I encourage parents to write notes for themselves.

With parental/carer consent, I sometimes use video to help demonstrate helpful strategies and to train other carers/school staff.

A report and summary of suggestions are provided following the completion of my assessment.

Follow-up reports are written as necessary.

Where appropriate I refer families on to colleagues, such as an educational psychologist and/or developmental paediatrician, for further help.

I am always happy to discuss therapy with families/carers and professional staff.

******

I offer clinical supervision to Speech and Language Therapists. This can take place at my office or by telephone.
