How I Work

Initial Assessment:

This will include: taking a detailed case history; formal / informal assessment (as appropriate) and observation of your child's speech, language and communication abilities.

I also offer a more comprehensive assessment of receptive and expressive language abilities which is supported by a detailed report of my findings with recommendations, for example, for children undergoing the statementing process.

Therapy:

Therapy sessions are usually 50 minutes long. Therapy offered on a 1:1 basis addresses:

  • Speech delay / disorder
  • Language delay / disorder
  • Social communication skills (1:1 and group work)

For my younger clients, I tend to use a multi-sensory approach in the therapy sessions. For all clients, if I feel it appropriate, I have a range of iPad apps that I use to target specific areas of communication. All therapy programmes are bespoke and carefully explained. Homework is often provided to support the child in generalising their skills outside of therapy.
