Speech and Language Therapist 

Friday morning (preferably but can be changed if needed) every week term time

September 2023 start date

York Down Syndrome Support Group are looking for a Speech Therapist to work with some of our fabulous primary school aged children and their TA’s each Friday morning (term time). The children come together every second Friday for a group session lasting 50 minutes and are split between two groups (with 4 children in each group). When not delivering face to face group sessions the other weeks are split between groups delivered via Zoom and 1:1 visits into settings to assess and work on individual targets. Our current Therapist is retiring after being with us for nearly 7 years and is more than happy to talk through the role. We would also offer professional support and supervision from experts in Down Syndrome such as those at Symbol UK.

We are hoping that the person recruited would be able to start in September and may be able to carry out some initial individual assessments in the Summer Term (June/July 2023).

Competitive rates paid.

Please email or call 0300 102 0321 to express interest and find out more.

Our school groups take place on a Friday morning in Poppleton, near York. We need help to transport our children and their accompanying Teaching assistants to the group from other schools across York. We can pay mileage costs and other relevant expenses. If you have an hour or two to spare on a Friday morning and would like to know more please get in touch.
