"I like working at Spire London East because it is always very calm and nothing is too much trouble for the other staff working here."
I have over 5 years of experience working with children from ages 2-18 with a wide range of Speech, Language and Communication needs. I specialise in working with children under 5. I have a particular interest in working with children with Selective Mutism, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Stammers and Speech Sound Difficulties. I am trained in using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), Attention Autism programme and Makaton Signing. I am also trained in the Lidcombe Programme for children who stammer.
I am registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health and Care Professions Council. I am a member of the Selective Mutism and Learning Difficulties Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and meets regularly with professional colleagues.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Deborah Hazell (nee Michaels) at Spire include:
I work with children from the age of 2-16 with a wide range of speech, language and communication difficulties.
