Set in its own grounds close to Frome town centre, North Hill House is an independent specialist day and residential school for children and young people aged 6 to 19 years with high functioning autistic spectrum disorders, including Asperger's Syndrome and associated difficulties.

We are seeking a suitably qualified and registered Speech and Language Therapist with a passionate and informed interest in Autism (ASC) and co-conditions to join our team at Priory, North Hill House School. The successful applicant will have tangible experience supporting and facilitating 1:1 and group therapy to young people between the ages of 5 - 19 years.

We are looking for:
  • A sound knowledge of evidence based support within the field of ASC is required, ELKLAN training is desirable but not essential.
  • The successful applicant will have suitable experience supporting language and developmental delays, skilled in facilitating standardised assessment[s], scoring, analysis and creating bespoke programmes.
  • You will be proactive in disseminating best ways of working to the wider support team and will be confident to deliver onsite profession specific training to colleagues as and when required.

You will work in close partnership with a diverse team of Therapy, educational and care specialists, including our Occupational Therapists, Counsellor, Educational Psychologists and Dyslexia specialist to deliver tailored support that meets the needs of each young person.

You will be joining a supportive and experienced team of dedicated support staff, committed to delivering the very best care. You will be actively encouraged and supported to remain up to date with CPD and both internal and external training opportunities are available to you. The successful applicant will receive a bespoke internal induction programme and the ability to network with Therapists across other Priory sites.

This role is term time only and whilst we are ideally seeking a full time Speech and Language Therapist, we would be happy to consider applications from candidates wishing to work part time.

The school has been specifically designed to provide a strong focus for both UK and international students who need different levels of support to succeed, thus allowing young people with autistic spectrum disorders, Asperger's Syndrome and associated difficulties to thrive effectively in an ever-demanding and complex society. Students have ambitions to live and work as self-reliant adults and we can help them to reach their goals with continued support, structure and guidance. The school welcomes students on a day or weekly residential basis for 38 weeks per year.

If you would like any further information, or to discuss the role in more detail, please contact Craig Glen on.
