Speech and Language Therapy


Being able to speak clearly and process speech sounds, to understand others, to express ideas and interact with others are fundamental building blocks for a child’s development. Analysis shows that good communication, language and literacy at a young age have the highest correlation with outcomes in school at seven years. 

( ICAN, Speech, Language and Communication Needs and the Early Years 2009) 


I can offer assessment of your child's language and communication skills, and therapy for a range of speech, language and communication difficulties including: attention and listening difficulties, speech difficulties - speech delay and speech disorder, verbal dyspraxia, language delay and language disorder, and social communication difficulties; and I have specialist experience of working with children with Autism Spectrum Conditions.

For children who are having significant difficulty with speech and language, I am experienced in conducting assessment of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems (for example Makaton signs and symbols, objects of reference) that may help support your child to express him/herself.

  • Derbyshire Language Scheme  
  • Colourful Semantics 
  • Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme
  • Social Use of Language Programme (SULP)
