Jennifer Roder, Independent Speech and Language Therapist

Overview of Qualifications & Experience

I have over 25 years of experience and have worked in specialist and managerial posts within the NHS but have practised solely in the Independent sector since 2002.

I have a degree in speech and language therapy and also a certificate in education specialising in specific learning difficulties. I am Listening Programme practitioner.

The Listening Programme can help children who have auditory processing difficulties as well as other conditions. I am also trained to use Talk Tools which can help to develop the articulation of speech sounds. If your child needs signing support then I have an extensive vocabulary of signs that I can share with you as your child develops.

Specialities of Practice

I have specialised in paediatrics and have a particular interest in specific speech and language disorders, dyslexia and children who need help with their social thinking and friendship skills. I have worked closely with teachers in many educational settings and have an excellent working knowledge of the curriculum requirements at both primary and secondary school.

I am happy to work with individuals or small groups of pupils. I can also support individuals within their class and can deliver activities through the speaking and listening curriculum or PSHE to the whole class alongside their teacher.

I have completed the Lidcombe Training Programme which is aimed at treating young children (up to 7) who stutter. It is a highly effective approach developed by Mark Onslow in Australia.


Parent to Parent

I am also a mother and feel that this is an important part of my approach to children and their therapy. I have been through the terrible twos, the first day at school, the ups and the downs of watching my child's progress and the challenges of those teenage years. I look forward to sharing your child's successes with you.
