Speech and Language Therapy

Communication is at the core of what we all do at home, in school and in work.

For children and young people, good communication skills are essential for learning and making friends.  All children need environments which support the development of speech, language and communication skills; not just those with identified speech, language or communication needs.

If your child is already known to a Speech and Language Therapist outside of school, I will work closely with your child’s therapist to oversee their support in school.

Otherwise, if you have any concerns about your child’s speech and language skills, I am happy to discuss these with you and can be contacted via the link on the right.
