Hi, my name is Kathryn Hashim. I am a dual-qualified highly specialist speech and language therapist of 19 + years, a trained primary school teacher and I am a mum of three children.
Having qualified with a BSc Hons Speech and Language Therapy in 2002 from University of Ulster, I gained extensive experience in the NHS across various clinical, nursery, school and Sure Start Children’s Centre speech therapy positions, successfully working with individual children, small groups and providing training courses to parents and early years’ staff over many years.
Having also gained a primary Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) qualification at Stranmillis University College in 2015 and worked for periods as a primary teacher alongside my speech therapy, I have gained an in-depth understanding of the Northern Ireland Curriculum and how speech, language and communication fit into all aspects of nursery and primary school life.
My unique training and experience enables me to help your child develop their best possible speech and language skills to help them have confidence and success not only in their life at home but also in their friendships, hobbies and in all aspects of their learning at school.
If you have concerns about your child contact me today and we can talk through their needs and how I might be able to help you.
