Vicky Upton Profile

Skills

My extensive career as a Learning Support Assistant has developed many transferable skills
that I can rely upon to support me as a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant. I enjoy
therapy sessions with our paediatric clients, doing lots of play based learning, and coming up
with creative ways to teach or reinforce speech, language and communication skills. I can
communicate effectively with our clients – children and adults – and their families/carers.
As an assistant, I work as part of a team with the therapists to achieve the best possible
outcomes for our clients, and also carry out sessions independently following different
programs.
I deliver therapy sessions in the therapy room at our office, in clients own homes, schools, and
brain injury care homes, with clients with varying needs.

Background

I previously worked as a Learning Support Assistant in a primary school for 20 years, working
with children aged 2-11. During this career, I supported children educationally, behaviourally,
emotionally and mentally. I took on other roles, such as after school club leader, 1-1 tuition, and
running a parent and toddler group.
One of my particular interests was supporting children’s speech and language, so I was
delighted when a job opportunity at Eg (Training) came up.

Personal

In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking cakes, and going for walks in scenic places. I love to
spend time with my family and friends.

Support

I love working at Eg (Training) Ltd. I felt welcome, cared for and supported from my first day. I
enjoy the variation in the clients we support. No two days are the same. As well as supporting
our clients, I also enjoy making resources for use in sessions.
I am keen to learn new skills so as well as the regular CPD days we undertake, I actively seek
out new training and information to further my knowledge to make me more able to support
people with speech, language and communication needs.
