Our speech and language therapist

My name is Christine Gareis.  I qualified as a speech and language therapist after obtaining a first class honours degree in clinical language sciences at Leeds Metropolitan University.  Since then I have worked across a number of roles in the NHS within clinics and mainstream schools.  I have also worked on projects for The Communication Trust.  More recently I was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma with Distinction at The University of Sheffield specialising in Language and Literacy.   I continue to work part time in the NHS as a specialist speech and language therapist alongside my independent work at Steps 2 Talking.
