Some children see the world differently and can find it difficult to share attention, interact, play and communicate with others.
Does your child find interacting and playing with others hard?
Does your child need help to look, notice and enjoy interacting with you more?
Do you need help introducing PECS at home or in pre-school?
Are they finding it difficult to understand language or use their words to communicate?
Kidscom can help you and your child with our tailored and child specific communication therapy in your home, child's pre-school or in our central Chippenham clinic.
Learning to understand words and to talk are amazing skills that we often take for granted. Some children find it more challenging to learn and use language and need some support to help them.
Does your child find it challenging to understand and say new words?
Do they find it hard to listen and follow instructions?
Are you concerned they are not talking yet or using shorter sentences than their friends of a similar age?
I can assess your child's language level and provide fun and tailored therapy sessions at home, or in their education setting, to boost their language skills so that they can better listen, understand and communicate with others.
The English language has so many different speech sounds. Learning how to choose, plan and say the right sounds in words is a complex skill and one that your child may be struggling with.
Does your child talk with immature sounding speech?
Are there sounds they cannot, or really struggle to say?
Do they have a lisp?
Do they have a speech disorder or verbal dyspraxia and need regular and more specialist therapy support?
Kidscom can help you by providing timely and specialist assessment and therapy for your child.
Being able to quickly and easily say your name, ask a question, tell a joke, share your news from the weekend or ask for directions are things we do everyday. For some children and young people though, getting their words out easily and fluently can be a real challenge.
Does your child repeat words at the beginning of their sentences?
Do some words get stretched out or completely stuck?
Are they reluctant to talk in class, or with new people, because of their stammer?
Do you want advice and strategies in how best to support your child with their fluency at home?
Kidscom can help you. I provide assessments and a mixture of direct speech work and CBT/ACT therapy support for children and young people from 2-18 years old who are having difficulties with stuttering/stammering.
Hanen: More Than Words is finally available in Wiltshire!
As a parent, you know how challenging it can be for your child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other social communication difficulties to interact meaningfully with others and connect with the world around them.
The More Than Words Programme was designed specifically for parents of children ages 5 and under who have Autism or other social communication difficulties. The programme provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their children reach their full communication potential.
