It goes without saying that you, as a parent or carer, know your child better than anyone and are therefore in the best possible position to help your child to reach their full potential. It is therefore vitally important that you feel confident in knowing how to support your child's communication skills. I believe that working closely with you, the parent or carer, provides the best outcome for your child.
I will visit you and your child at home and take a detailed case history and carry out a thorough assessment of your child's communication. I am also able to carry out assessment or therapy sessions at your child's school or nursery if preferred. If I feel that Speech and Language Therapy would be appropriate, we will jointly set goals and determine the best course of action to support your child. This may be in the form of a block of one to one therapy sessions or ideas and strategies for you to work on at home. Each child is unique and therapy approaches will be tailored to your child's individual needs. At the end of a block of sessions we will jointly discuss whether further therapy is needed and plan this together. I am also able to liaise with your child's preschool or school to discuss strategies if requested.
