Speaking and Listening work with children with a range of difficulties including:

  • Attention and Listening difficulties
  • Stammering
  • Speech sound difficulties
  • Delayed expressive language e.g. difficulties learning new words or difficulties forming sentences
  • Delayed understanding of language e.g. difficulty following instructions or learning new concepts

The first contact will always involve an assessment so that I can fully understand your child’s current communication skills. This may involve observations and discussions as well as formal or informal assessments with your child. If a joint decision is made that therapy would be useful, clear targets are set and a timeframe agreed. All assessments and therapy are presented in a fun and non-threatening manner. Therapy will take place in your child’s home or educational setting.

I always work alongside any NHS therapist involved and liaise with all professionals involved with your child such as nursery/ school staff and other medical professionals.
