Alison Battye

Lead Speech and Language Therapist

I have worked as a Speech and Language Therapist for 20 years, working predominantly in the NHS. I currently manage a multidisciplinary team of Allied Health Professionals. I have practised yoga and meditation for as long as I have been an Allied Health Professional. Yogic Philosophy has profoundly influenced how I show up in the world. This inevitably informs my approach as a therapist and a team leader. If we can tune into our own needs, we more effectively meet the needs of others.


I have clinical specialisms in AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) and Autism Spectrum Condition.  I am experienced in facilitating multi-agency working across health, education and social care, and in working to enable and empower those who support children and young people with communication difficulties.

I have written three books for Routledge, and various articles for magazines and journals.
