Andrea Richards

Independent speech and language therapist

Andrea Richards is a speech and language therapist with over 10 years’ experience working with a wide range of clients. She has recently written The Chatterbugs Manual - an early years' speech, language, and communication programme.


Andrea's specialism is working with mainstream primary schools. Her service prioritises recommendations from high profile reviews, such as the Bercow Report, where early identification of need, early intervention, and joint working between services are highlighted as essential.

In 2012, Andrea founded an independent speech and language therapy service, Chatschool, through which she provides training and supervision of the Chatterbugs programme to primary schools and nurseries.

Andrea has also contributed to the undergraduate and postgraduate speech therapy courses at University College London and her clinical practice is informed by sound evidence-based approaches.
