About Sue Moon 

I qualified from Birmingham City University with a first-class Honours degree in Speech and Language Therapy in 2012. I work with children, teenagers and adults, supporting them with a range of communication needs including, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Pathological Demand Avoidance, Language delay/disorder and a range of mental health difficulties. I also work with schools and parents, helping them to create the most supportive environment possible for the young person.

I specialise in working with women and girls with Autism and am skilled in identifying and addressing the more subtle signs of Autism that girls often present with. I have a wealth of experience in supporting families and schools and often act as a link between the two. I regularly attend conferences, related to Autism and Asperger's Syndrome, to keep my knowledge and skills up to date. I am on the steering group of the SWAP Network, an innovative group of professionals working with women and girls with Autism.

I am a practising member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, registered with the Health & Care Professions Council and am DBS (CRB) checked.


What I really like about Sue’s approach is that she really took time to get to know our daughter.

She is working in a very professional way with the staff at school, supporting them to better support her. But mostly, I would recommend Sue because on "Sue days" at school, my daughter tends to come home with a smile on her face.

Susan, parent

Sue is very approachable and considerate

Sue’s report was comprehensive, clear and enlightening. We believe this insight will help us to make better decisions about our daughters’ future. Sue is very approachable and considerate; we would recommend her to any parent, guardian or educational organisation that needs thoughtful, insightful and professional assistance with their child.

Simon, parent

I have no hesitation in recommending Sue to parents and schools looking for guidance and ongoing support.

Sue builds strong, professional working relationships with the pupils and provides excellent and insightful advice for staff.  Sue is extremely reliable and her knowledge and experience are clear.

Rebecca, Head of Learning Support

Sue has helped my daughter recognise her issues

Sue has helped my daughter recognise her issues and given her effective strategies to deal with them. This has given her more self-confidence as she has been able to access learning in lessons.

Helen, Parent

Sue is passionate about understanding children

Starting to see social and educational difficulties in your child is a stressful and worrying time for any parent. However, once Sue had spent time with us she was able to get across the key information required and lay out the options we had. Sue is obviously passionate about understanding children like our daughter and that is reassuring as a parent learning about a new world.

Paul, parent

My daughter would not be where she is today without Sue!

I cannot thank Sue enough for her knowledge, commitment and dedication and for the tireless work she has done to advocate a better understanding of Asperger’s in girls.

Ada, parent

Sue understood me straight away

Sue understood me straight away and I felt very comfortable talking to her.
