Hilary Mawdesley, BSc (Hons) Birmingham City University, HCPC registered
Hilary qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist from Birmingham City University in 2017. She is currently working part-time for the NHS as a Children’s SLT and has experience working in a range of settings including clinics, pre-schools, mainstream schools and special schools, working with children aged 2 – 11yrs. She is experienced in working closely with teaching staff to best support the child’s needs in an educational setting.
Six years ago, Hilary decided to change her career direction entirely. She formerly worked within police forces and then central government where she led a team of Home Office researchers and statisticians. However, due to personal circumstances, Hilary came into contact with Speech and Language Therapists and experienced the tremendous impact they can have on the confidence and wellbeing of children.
Hilary is passionate about making a difference to children with speech, language or communication difficulties. She has particular interests in working with children with speech delay or disorders and working out the best ways to engage and motivate children within therapy. She also considers it very important to involve parents in therapy to ensure the best outcomes for their child, while appreciating the day-to-day practicalities of fitting this into daily routines. She also has particular interest in working with children with social communication difficulties including those diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. As a student, she supported children with such difficulties within mainstream school in a voluntary capacity.
Hilary has two young children at primary school and fully appreciates that different personalities and a child’s interests should strongly influence how therapy sessions are tailored, to ensure success and enjoyment!
