Our Professional Values are:


Words First is made up of 38 Speech and Language Therapists from 10 different countries around the world. We’re diverse and we love that! We respect everybody no matter their background, their history, their beliefs, their religion, their gender or race.

Collaboration and openness

We share ideas, resources, tips and strategies so that we can ALL grow and learn together.

Open channels of communication

From the Director to our brand-new Speech and Language Therapists, we want clear and open channels of communication, through which you feel you can express your thoughts and ideas and ultimately be heard and feel valued.

A place for ideas

If you have ideas, then this is the place for you! We love innovative, creative and forward-thinking therapists who value research and evidence-based practice.

Child Centred

Every decision we make will have the child’s best interests at heart.

Research driven

Our assessment batteries and intervention approaches will always have a solid, peer-reviewed research base.


Our door is always open. If you have questions or want to pop in to watch us, we welcome that!


We appreciate the complexity of day-to-day work in schools. Some days don’t go according to plan, but your therapist will always adapt to your changing needs.


From time-keeping to report writing, everything we do will be of the highest professional standard.
