I have been a member of the Spires Cleft Lip and Palate Team since October 2022, so I am still very new, and learning lots! I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Speech and Language Sciences in 2021, and I am hoping to continue my studies after gaining more relevant experience. My role as a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant involves liaising with the clinicians to help improve patient experience and lend an extra pair of hands in busier clinics. My role can involve creating resources, calling families, and setting-up clinics. I love being involved in such a supportive team, as well as being able to learn about the vast array of different therapy approaches and resources available to help patient’s reach their full potential.
