Mrs Tellervo Pirinen

Member since: 09/09/2014

I am a Specialist Speech & Language Therapist supporting children and their families in South-West London. With several years of experience in the NHS and later in Independent Practice too, I have specialised in working with preschool and primary school-aged children. I believe in creating a relaxed, playful environment and motivating children to achieve meaningful outcomes in therapy.

I work with children with a range of communication needs. These include: speech sound difficulties including delays, disorders and dyspraxia, developmental language disorder and language delay, dysfluency and selective mutism. I also have a special interest in the links between communication and behaviour and have experience of working with children with social and emotional needs, as well as a Masters Certification in Child and Family Therapy.

I work with children in their home, nursery or school. Children are often most at ease in these natural environments which can make therapy feel more comfortable.
