Examples of how we have been helping families

If your child has unclear speech

We provide a target focussed speech therapy programme that looks into the cause of the speech sound issue and identifies the areas for therapy with the objective of using clearer sounds in day to day talking. As a result your child will reduce their levels of frustration at not being understood.

If your child struggles with social skills

For some children and young people, social communication presents a massive challenge. Depending on the skills and stage of language development we put together an agreed programme which can help you as a family to provide support to your child in areas such as feelings and emotions, conversation skills, understanding and making sense of real social situations. Enabling your child to engage in friendship groups and feel more included at nursery or at school. 

If your child is a late talker

We provide a tailored programme of support and guidance for the family using language building strategies that increase a child’s expressive vocabulary during everyday family activities. When your child can ask for what they want and when they want it the whole family benefits.

If your child is a late talker and has a learning disability

In addition to the programme above we will look at building understanding of language skills (receptive skills). This may mean we explore alternative methods of communication to support language such as symbols or signing on the pathway to speech.

I was a bit nervous before and at the start of the session as this is new to me! But Zoe was friendly and I soon felt at ease talking on the app and discussing concerns and reason for having the sessions for my child.
