Anthony Caldwell
Speech and Language Therapist

My undergraduate studies in Linguistics together with early experiences of trying to communicate with a grandfather who had suffered a severe stroke, initially inspired me to train as a Speech and Language Therapist.

I qualified from City University, London in 2001 and since then, I have worked with adults and children in various NHS and education settings with a range of communication difficulties including, speech and language difficulties following stroke, voice disorders, delayed and disordered speech and language in children in mainstream and special schools.

Prior to joining the team at Highshore in 2013, I worked in a Specialist Unit for Children with ASC, providing an outreach service to mainstream primary schools in West Kent and working with Consultant Community Paediatricians in an Autism Diagnostic Clinic in Tunbridge Wells.
