Specialist

Speech Therapy

We work with children presenting with specific difficulties in Auditory Processing, Speech Sound Development and Language. This means the difficulties are not caused by Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Global Developmental Delay or a syndrome, such as Down's Syndrome.

Our vision is to support and empower each child and family whilst providing specialist therapeutic interventions. A holistic, warm, caring approach is provided through assessment, therapy sessions, home and school programmes plus parental group support sessions. These sessions be  delivered in person or as tele-therapy, delivered via Zoom.  Our work is underpinned by Christian values and all aspects supported with prayer.

Parents are seen as an essential part of our approach and asked to attend sessions and be fully involved. 

We aim for each family to leave the service feeling empowered and knowing how to support their child's communication. 

Our response to Covid-19

During the current situation we remain open and wish to be fully accessible, to help in whatever way works for you. Tele-therapy and assessment are offered as are parent training sessions, parental support sessions and home programmes. We completely understand that each day is a challenge and it is hard to predict what will feel do-able from day to day. We have a closed parent support group on Facebook where you can connect with others who can relate to what you are feeling and find mutual support. Facilitated parental group meetings are held regularly for those who can find a bit of the time for themselves. We know when we do that we can better care for others. This is not an easy time for any of us but we want to continue to help you and your family and widen our support as far as we can. As always our policy on prices remains unfixed - we ask you pay what you can. If you would like prayer support, it would be our privilege to pray for you and your loved ones.
