13 years post qualification and Joy's love for enabling communication is as strong as ever. She believes too many children start school with speech, language and communication skills that aren't good enough to enable learning and the development of friendships.

Communication is crucial and early intervention and assessment is essential to support children, families and education providers in meeting the Speech, Language and Communication Needs of our children. Joy strives to train and inspire staff in schools to feel confident to work with the increasing number of children in their classes with needs in a fun, engaging manner.

She provides assessment and intervention within the school setting to help pupils to reach their learning and communication potential.
