Lynn C B Joyce


Independent Speech and Language Therapist

I am a Speech and Language Therapist from the USA and have enjoyed living in the UK for 20 years.  I studied at the University of Missouri for my undergraduate degree in Speech and Language Therapy and Psychology.  I completed my Master degree at the University of Oregon in Speech and Language Therapy.

 Communication connects people.  I enjoy helping children achieve their best speech, language and communication skills so that they can reach their full potential.

 I have raised and home educated my three children and have an understanding about individual learning styles.  I strive to find a way to tap into a child’s educational style and add fun.

Little known facts about me:

  • I’m claustrophobic in caves!!
  • I grew up on a farm in the the American midwest.
