About Us
Meet the experienced team working with Traintalk.

Beth qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2004 and since then has enjoyed working with children, their families and teaching staff across a range of environments in both the UK and in New Zealand.

Beth was a Senior Lecturer in Speech and Language Therapy for 3 years before having her daughter, combining this role with her clinical post in the Northamptonshire NHS team. Beth also worked as an Early Language Consultant for the Government initiative ‘Every Child a Talker’. She is an Elklan tutor, a licensed I CAN tutor and holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. In August 2019 Beth was awarded an NHS Quality Care award for her work on developing a care pathway for children with Selective Mutism in Northamptonshire.

Beth’s areas of clinical interest are language delay/disorder, speech delay/disorder and selective mutism.

Beth’s other passion is training, and she is currently involved in various projects with Elklan, including the delivery of the 3-5s and 5-11s accredited courses, tutoring of the Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI), and supporting Early Years Practitioners in Leicester, Leicestershire and Telford as part of the Early Years Professional Development Programme.

Jenny qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2006 and has since been working in different roles within the NHS. Jenny spent 7 years as the lead Speech and Language Therapist within a pre-school language provision where she managed caseloads of children who presented with severe speech and language disorders. Through this role she oversaw a small team of practitioners and worked closely with members of the multidisciplinary team to provide intensive daily therapy.

Jenny has worked within a range of settings which has given her a breadth of experience working with pre-school and school-aged children. Jenny has worked collaboratively with parents and run training sessions for parents, carers and school staff. Jenny is an Elklan Tutor.

Jenny was part of a team who developed the clinical pathway for children who stammer in Northamptonshire. She has extensive experience of supporting children who stammer using evidenced-based approaches such as the Lidcombe Programme and Palin Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. Jenny has supported families and run group therapy sessions for children who stammer. Jenny was nominated for an NHS Quality Award by a family she had supported.

Jenny’s areas of clinical interest are language delay/ disorder, speech delay/disorder and stammering. She is now working as an Independent Speech and Language Therapist.
