Unclear Speech

Initially, I would meet with your child and carry out some child friendly speech assessments that will allow me to better understand why they are struggling, what speech sounds they can say clearly and what errors they are making. 

I will explain to you what difficulties your child is having and the most effective way forward in treating your child's speech difficulty. 

If your child would benefit from some direct therapy sessions  we can talk about this together and agree on some initial goals to focus on. the sessions are approximately 45 min in length and can be weekly or bi-weekly. I can also offer some online therapy sessions if we agree your child is suitable and would be able to access this well. 

I am experienced in using a a range of speech sound therapy methods including Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme and Cued Articulation. I believe all therapy should be fun and engaging and I use a mixture of table top activities, physical games as well as iPad apps in therapy sessions. I will also suggest homework activities for you to complete between visits. 

Your child's appointment can be at my home-based therapy clinic in Chippenham or you can request a home visit/school or pre-school visit (this is subject to availability and additional travel charges). I also offer online therapy sessions for speech sounds if your child has good attention and would be able to access this style of therapy.
