Yasmin Akhtar

My name is Yasmin and for so long, it has been my dream to reach out to people in order to help. I began this journey almost 2 decades ago when I completed my Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Clinical Language Sciences, Speech and Language Therapy. What I have learned from working with so many amazing families and professionals is partly what has led me to where I am today. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with some incredible parents from all walks of life, not to mention the hundreds of family members who have supported the children along their journeys. My conversations with these families encouraged me to share my knowledge and experience on a wider scale. With my professional skills and experience, which I feel allows me to relate to parents on a personal level and therefore I feel passionate about helping a lot more parents than only those who are able to see me in my clinic. My children are now teenagers, they bring me so much love, joy, and of course challenges, as do juggling my job, business, and being a mum. It's because of the combination of these experiences that I want to help and support parents across the world however possible. I now practice as a private Speech and Language Therapist. I also have a website where parents can access free and paid-for training courses. My Facebook group, kids delayed speech and language development support group’ is continuing to grow. I post tips for parents to help them improve their children's speech and language skills. I am looking forward to writing and sharing many more books with everyone, on speech and language development and other related topics.
