Linda Jose

Teaching Fellow in Speech & Lang. Scie.

Background

I am a qualified Speech and Language Therapist, completing my BSc in Speech and Language Sciences and graduating from Newcastle University in 2008. Since that time I have worked as a generalist and specialist therapist in the NHS. My area of experience and specialist knowledge is Autism Spectrum Conditions and secondary school age pupils.

My work involved collaboration with parents, carers and other members of the multi-disciplinary team in developing appropriate packages of care for individuals with speech, language and communication needs. A large part of my role involved developing and delivering training packages to parents and professionals. This sparked an interest in teaching which motivates me within my current position as a teaching fellow.  

I may be seen around the university in another capacity, especially the sports centre. As I am also a coach for the University’s Kick Boxing and Thai boxing clubs having remained involved with both societies since my time here as a student.
