Welcome to our Communication page where you will find lots of information about the work that our Speech and Language Therapists do at School.
Meet our Speech and Language Therapists:
Katrina graduated as a Speech and Language Therapist from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, and has since then gained experience across a range of primary schools including mainstream, SEMH, ASD, and Social Communication difficulties. She has also conducted work and created visual resources to support people with learning disabilities and/or who are vulnerable for the Scottish Justice System. She enjoys working across all ages and finds it pivotal that the student is able to communicate to express their views and opinions. She will therefore be working closely with students, teachers and TAs to help develop language and communication skills.
