Hello and welcome to Word of Mouth Therapy Limited
"My name is Michele Thompson and I am an Specialist 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!"
The team work with pre-school and school-aged children in a variety of settings: at our clinic space in Kingston, in nurseries, and in primary and secondary schools. We work with mainly neurodiverse children and specialise in supporting social communication and emotional regulation.
We believe in working as flexibly as possible with parents, carers and other professionals involved. With younger clients, we prefer to conduct the session with a parent present so that we can work together to support the child's developing communication skills.
We run regular social communication groups on Saturdays at our clinic space in Kingston during term times. We also offer summer groups during the school holidays. These groups are based on Social Thinking® principles. In 2018 Michele completed her Clinical Training Level 1 Assessment at Social Thinking® headquarters in California.
We also run online SPOT parent training with Emma Penfold, Occupational Therapist which supports parents in managing their children's behaviour at home using a combination of occupational therapy and speech and language therapy approaches.
