Liz qualified as a speech and language therapist in 1999. Her final clinical placement at university gave Liz a passion for working with children with a hearing loss and their families.

Since then, Liz has worked for the NHS supporting a wide range of children, from four months to 16 years old, in a variety of settings, including a specialist school for the Deaf, resourced provisions within mainstream schools, nurseries, homes and community clinics.

In 2005 she joined the Yorkshire Auditory Implant Service’s multidisciplinary team as a principal speech and language therapist where she remained until August 2023. During this time Liz met with colleagues who had already completed their training in Auditory Verbal Therapy, and she could see the positive difference this had made to the children’s speech and language outcomes. This led her to pursue the training for herself and she qualified as a Listening and Spoken Language Specialist, certified Auditory Verbal Therapist in 2018.

Liz joined the team at AVUK in October 2023 and is based in Yorkshire. She also works as an independent therapist with a developing interest in supporting children with additional needs, in particular neurodivergent children. She is currently studying a Postgraduate Diploma in Sensory Integration.

In her spare time Liz enjoys spending time with her family, going to see concerts and shows, but mostly you will find her running, preferably over hills and in the countryside.

Liz works Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 8.30-4.30
