Please call or email if you would like to talk about your child’s speech and language development or if you would like to make an appointment.
An initial appointment lasts about 1 ½ hours. I will ask you details about your child’s development and family history. I will observe you playing with your child and will begin the assessment procedure. The appointment usually takes place in the child-friendly clinic room within my family home. Visits to nursery or your home can also be arranged. Assessment may be spread over more than one session depending on the age of your child and the sort of difficulties they are experiencing.
Following the assessment I will discuss my findings and recommendations so that we can agree an appropriate way forward that suits your child and your family situation.
This may be regular weekly or fortnightly therapy, less frequent visits to monitor progress or simply follow up conversations by phone or email to monitor progress. Alternatively a programme in nursery or school may be recommended.
I am totally committed to working with parents thereby promoting positive communication strategies at home. Because it:
- Allows parents to resolve their own child’s problems
- Integrates therapy into everyday life
