Hello and welcome to Word of Mouth Therapy Limited
My name is Michele Thompson and I am an Independent Speech & Language Therapist based in South West London.
I am incredibly passionate about my work and believe that I have, quite possibly, the best job in the world! I work with pre-school and school-aged children in a variety of settings: at my clinic space in Kingston (from January 2015), in nurseries, and in primary and secondary schools. I work with children presenting with an array of speech, language and communication difficulties. These difficulties might include: specific speech sound (articulation) difficulties, delayed or disordered language skills (both receptive and expressive difficulties), and difficulties with social skills and pragmatics.
I have a great deal of experience working with children who present with Autism Spectrum Condition (including Asperger's Syndrome) and I find this work tremendously rewarding.
I believe in working as flexibly as possible with parents, carers and other professionals involved. With younger clients, I prefer to conduct the session with a parent present so that we can work together to support the child's developing communication skills.
I also have a working knowledge of Latin-American Spanish (language and phonology).
I run regular social communication groups on Saturdays at my clinic space in Kingston.
