For parents

We can provide therapy for your child in your own home.

We offer specialist assessment and intervention for a wide range of speech, language and communication difficulties. Therapy can be provided for:

  • Understanding Language
  • Using words and putting words together in sentences
  • Speech sounds (pronunciation)
  • Grammar in spoken language
  • Developing vocabulary
  • Stammering
  • Auditory memory and processing (listening to, interpreting and recalling spoken language)
  • Social communication difficulties (including for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder)
  • Phonological awareness (early fundamental skills for literacy development)
  • Articulation and oral-motor skills (e.g. for children with Dyspraxia)
  • Children requiring Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) e.g. Makaton, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).

We work closely with you as a family to ensure that you have the information and strategies to best support your child to achieve their potential for communication. Our service begins with a free informal consultation over the telephone. Our lead therapist will take some details, talk through your concerns and decide on the best plan of action for you and your child. This might be therapy sessions at home, interventions provided for your child at school with school staff support, or advice to help you support your child's needs on a daily basis.

Therapy sessions will vary according to the nature of your child's difficulties. They may be weekly, fortnightly or monthly. All sessions are game-based and carried out in your own home to ensure that your child is relaxed and engaged. We will also provide targets and activities for you and your child to practise at home in between therapy sessions to maximise therapy effectiveness. We will provide all materials and resources as necessary and review progress on a regular basis.

If we feel that your child's difficulties can be managed at home through advice and activities, we may offer review appointments, rather than regular therapy. We are always happy to be contacted by phone or email to answer any questions you may have as and when they arise.

If you are unsure whether your child needs to be seen by a Speech and Language Therapist, get in touch. We are happy to talk things through with you over the phone, provide general recommendations and advise whether a referral is necessary.
