Senior Specialist Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist  

The Brainwave Centre Limited

Are you looking for a role which will bring you satisfaction and make a difference to families of children with disabilities?

At Brainwave, we are able to offer our therapists a continuity of case load while working alongside a multi-disciplinary team. Our therapists have the opportunity and time to thoroughly get to know the families and children that they work allowing them to find out what matters to them as a family, assess and trial therapy and to build a rapport. This gives the therapist job satisfaction that can be difficult to find elsewhere and really lets them know that they are making a difference.

We are seeking to appoint a Senior Specialist Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist to lead our team. The successful candidate will have line management experience and of using a range of interventions and strategies to support complex communication needs of children with learning disabilities and profound and multiple learning disabilities. Formal training or relevant experience of using Parent Child Interaction approaches, Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) methods (Switches, PECS, Eye Gaze, Makaton signing etc.) and knowledge of Dysphagia assessment and treatment and Sensory Integration approach is desirable.

It is an exciting time to be joining Brainwave, as we head towards celebrating our 40th year of providing life-changing therapies for disabled children and their families. This could be anything from a child walking or feeding themselves, to counting or forming sentences.

We are an innovative and creative national charity and during the pandemic developed Brainwave Online - www.brainwave.org.uk/brainwave-online so that we could continue providing support, whilst we had to temporarily suspend our face-to-service.

Our multi-disciplinary therapy team predominantly work with children from birth to 12 years who have a range of conditions and diagnoses including:

• Cerebral Palsy
• Developmental Delay
• Autism
• Brain Injury
• Down’s syndrome
• Other genetic conditions, and children with no formal diagnosis.
