Speech and Language Therapist
Kirsty Waterworth is an HCPC Registered Speech and Language Therapist who specialises in supporting neurodivergent children with communication difficulties. She also supports young people whose communication needs have been shaped by experiences of trauma and who present with social, emotional and mental health needs. Kirsty previously worked in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), supporting young autistic people experiencing mental health crisis. She worked holistically with the young people, health care settings, education providers and families to best meet a young person’s needs. Kirsty now works with a varied paediatric caseload to provide person-centred assessment, therapy, training and support, across all speech and language needs. She is passionate about supporting young people to reach their communication goals and to self-advocate. She loves working to promote well-being within families and to empower them to connect beyond differences; and with schools to create environments that enable all different kinds of effective communication.
