SHEFFIELD SPEECH AND LANGUAGE
SPECIALIST THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
I am a highly specialist speech and language therapist who combines working in the NHS with offering private therapy for children with speech, language and communication needs.
I specialise in working with children who have Autism or social communication difficulties of all ages. However, I am also experienced in providing therapy for children with other speech, language and communication needs. Where I feel a different professional may be better placed to support you, I am happy to signpost you on to other highly experienced therapists.
I can provide therapy in either nursery, school or home settings. I am also able to provide one off assessments or reports for legal documents such as EHCPs or MSP's.
The intensity and duration of therapy will vary according to you child's specific needs; however, most therapy sessions last between 30-60 minutes as the aim is to keep the child engaged and enjoying the therapy. In some cases, intervention may take the form of parent/carer education sessions to provide you with the skills and confidence to support your child's communication development on a daily basis.
