Jo Frederick MA, BA (Hons), MRCSLT,
I am an independent Speech and Language Therapist providing support to children and young people in the Leicestershire region.
I have 15 years’ experience as a children’s speech and language therapist, and 6 years experience as a parent. I have worked for the NHS in a range of settings, including hospital clinics, primary and secondary mainstream schools and special schools. As well as working with individual children, teenagers and their families I have organised speech, language and communication groups in schools and nurseries. I am currently the speech and language therapist working with students who have communication needs at Brooksby Meltlon College.
I have led the delivery of early years language projects for local authorities, and provided training to a range of health care and educational professionals.
The best way of working to support children and young people with communication difficulties is together. My aim is to work with parents and other professionals to provide therapy that is specific to each child or young person’s needs. As a parent with two young children, I can appreciate that therapy activities need to be fun, practical and as effective as possible.
I am a registered member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
