Welcome to my website. I am Lisa Lawrence, a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, offering speech and language therapy in and around the Southampton area.
With over 22 years of experience working in a range of settings, I have been able to adapt my therapeutic approaches to motivate and inspire people in developing their communication skills. Throughout my time as a Speech and Language Therapist, I have attended a range of training, enabling me to incorporate an eclectic selection of approaches and techniques aimed to enhance the skills of speech, language and communication (including Augmentative, Alternative Communication). Through continued collaboration with yourself, we can agree a bespoke package which is tailored to your specific needs/the child’s specific needs.
I have extensive experience of training for parents, education staff, medical/therapy staff and undergraduate SLT students. I have carried out audits of inclusive communication within settings and contributed to these improvement plans in line with national guidance such as the ‘5 Good Communication Standards’ and other guidelines like ‘The Communication Commitment’
My specialist area is supporting people on the Autistic Spectrum and people with Learning Disabilities and I have over 20 years experience of working within this field.
If you are unsure whether Speech and Language Therapy may be beneficial or would like further information, please contact me for a free initial 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your/your child’s needs and what I could offer.
