Specialist

Speech Therapy

We work with children presenting with suspected or confirmed Developmental Language Disorder. 

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 are usually   delivered in person. Our work is underpinned by Christian values and all aspects supported with prayer. If you would value prayer support then please let us know. It would be our privilege to pray for you. 

Parents are seen as an essential part of our approach and asked to attend sessions and be fully involved. We work closely with schools too, liaising with regular feedback and recommendations. 

We hope each family leaves the service feeling empowered and better understanding how to support their child's communication, now and in the future. Families may stay under our umbrella of care for several years, receiving therapy when needed and interspersing these with breaks for consolidation and general maturity.

For those who are on low incomes there is a small fund to support your accessibility to this practise. 

Our response to Covid-19

During the current situation we are open and appointments are usually in person. Families are asked to take a lateral flow test on the day of the appointment and to get in touch ahead of their appointments should they or any member of their family present with Covid symptoms, no matter how mild. Online sessions can be delivered if an in person session is not appropriate.
