ABOUT

Mrs Paula Maestri

I am a fully qualified Speech and Language Therapist with over 12 years’ experience working with children from pre-school to 16 years old with additional needs and associated complex communication difficulties. I provide assessment and tailor-made therapy for children with a range of communication difficulties including language delays and disorders, social communication difficulties and communication difficulties associated with learning disability. I am also trained in Makaton and can work 1:1 with families and schools to provide visual support and developing early communication aids to support a child's communication and therefore ensuring your child is less frustrated within their home and school life. Having worked for the NHS for 10 years, I took the decision to work for national children’s Charity, Brainwave in Bridgwater. As a therapist at Brainwave, I am able to offer specific speech and language assessment and therapy sessions, but am also able to offer sessions for your child as part of a multi-disciplinary team if required, as physiotherapists, sensory trained therapists and learning development specialists are also part of the Brainwave Team. I am able to liaise with school and nursery settings in a bid to enable your child’s development and integration into schooling. www.brainwave.org.uk
