About Me

I’m Dipaley! I’m a Speech & Language Associate Practitioner (SLTAP). Here at Happy Chatters we have a team of SLTAP’s. This means that we work with and support your child to achieve their speech, language and communication targets that have been set by your Speech & Language Therapist, and use any recommended strategies.

If you do not have a Speech and Language Therapist and require an assessment, we can arrange this for you. We work alongside a team of Highly Specialist Speech & language Therapists who can do this for you and set targets for your child to support their speech, language and communication development.

I am fortunate to work alongside highly professional Speech & Language therapists to ensure a holistic approach in delivering personalised models.

My journey and interest in supporting children started 6 years ago, when I needed help in developing my daughter’s language skills. Whilst we worked with the NHS, who did the best they could with the resources available, it became apparent that she would need more for her to progress. I felt it was up to me as her parent to ensure continuity and consistency of the recommendations that were given.

As a parent of a child who is non-speaking or with communication needs, it can be difficult to understand how to help them, and this can be extremely frustrating. Working with my daughter inspired me to help other parents and children in similar circumstances.

Using my skills as an Early Years professional, and a mother I am able to continue in the Speech and Language Therapist’s footsteps to empower parents/caregivers on the best way they can help their children.

Being a proud mum to my Autistic daughter, I have learned so much, especially understanding that as parents it is our responsibility to ensure that our children develop the necessary communication and life skills to become young confident people, and meet their needs.

I am registered with the RCSLT (Royal College of Speech Language Therapist as an Associate Practitioner.

As a Speech and Language Associate Practitioner, I am not able to register with the Health and Care Professionals Council.
