a bit about me

My name is Fritha Fayers, I am a highly specialist children’s Speech and Language Therapist with over 10 years of clinical experience.

I have worked within the NHS and local statutory providers as well the independent sector, helping to support hundreds of children with speech, language and communication difficulties and their families. I have also provided assessment, therapy and training to schools and education professionals across Norfolk and beyond.

I have worked closely with a range of child development experts including Consultant Paediatricians, Educational Psychologists, Specialist Teachers and Occupational Therapists and have been a member of the Child and Educational Psychology Practice and more recently, Senior Neurodevelopmental Specialist at the Newberry Clinic in Gorleston.

I am also delighted to work in partnership with the wonderful people at Open Arms Support Service, a fantastic Occupational Therapy practice based in Norwich.

I love working with children, their families and other professionals and I really value spending time to get to know and understand each child as an individual. I use this insight, in combination with up-to-date evidence based assessments and therapeutic approaches, to provide truly individualised, child-centred intervention programmes with practical advice and resources that really work.

I have a special clinical interest and expertise in the following:

 

  • Phonological (speech sound) delay and disorder

  • Developmental Language Disorder

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Adverse childhood experiences and trauma

  • Social, emotional and behavioural difficulties

  • Selective Mutism

  • Stammering
