Emily graduated from Birmingham City University with a First Class Honours degree in Speech and Language Therapy. She has clinical experience working with children and adults in a wide range of settings, including community clinics and school settings. Her experience includes working with clients with attention and listening difficulties, language delay, speech difficulties, learning disabilities, aphasia and voice problems.

In addition to her role at Integrated Treatment Services, Emily holds a post at Tobii Dynavox, assisting with training and study days around the use of AAC and technology in different clients and conditions. This allows her to keep up-to-date with the latest innovations in technology and how these can be used in practice to support communication.

Emily’s clinical skill was recently recognised when she was awarded the Student Practice Award for Allied Health Professionals for her skill and ability whilst on placement at Birmingham City University.
