Hello. Here are the important things you need to know!
My name is Jennifer Green (I answer to Jen, as well) and I have been a speech and language therapist for over 18 years.
I have worked with and for many educational authorities as an employee of the NHS and of the national charity, Scottish Autism.
My roles as a therapist have varied hugely, from working as a community therapist zooming up and down Perthshire in my heavily laden car, to being seconded to set up pre-school outreach service to support inclusive communication practices within education, to being part of an early, integrated diagnostic team for complex communication disorders, to serving on The School Management Team of New Struan, A National, Residential School for Young People with Autism.
The settings in which I have worked varied hugely from working in nurseries, schools, units, clinics, homes and specialist schools. I have also been known to work in car parks, on the side of duals carriageways, in swimming pools, in toilets etc. for the more grassroots therapy!
Supporting individuals, from toddlers to school leavers and beyond, with speech, language, voice, fluency or social communication difficulties allows me to work in creative, motivational and empowering ways with the end goal being to help others understand, manage, overcome or navigate around their specific communication needs.
In the "stormy sea" of trying to deal with a child who has extra needs, Jennifer Green is the most wonderful "safe haven". Not only does she connect with children but they quickly come to like her and look forward to sessions with her. Jennifer was brilliant with our son, bringing him on and also identifying what help he needed, grasping quickly what his strengths and weaknesses were (and steering others in the right direction). Finding Jennifer was the most amazing piece of good fortune. That we have moved too far away is our loss. If only Jennifer could have come too.Roddy & Helen, parents to 9yr old boy
