Helping your child communicate effectively with others to the best of their ability

Speech & Language Therapy

Our aim is to enable your child to be able to communicate effectively with others to the best of their ability. We work together with you and your child to develop individual goals that are meaningful. By providing therapy that is fun and motivating, children are more likely to willingly engage in activities and make lasting growth.

Does your child...?
  •  Find it hard to say particular words? 
  •  Use shorter sentences than their peers? 
  •  Find it difficult to make friends? 
  •  Find it challenging to spell? 
  •  Get ‘stuck’ on words? 
  •  Find it difficult to do what you ask them to do? 
  •  Not use any words? 
  •  Say inappropriate things to others? 
  •  Find it difficult to play with others?
Assessment

SPOT provides a flexible approach to Speech and Language Assessments by using a mix of formal (standardised and norm-referenced) and informal assessments to gain an accurate picture of your child’s needs. This is then used to plan effective, accessible and fun therapy for your child. Our Speech and Language Therapy team will be happy to guide you to the right assessment for your child.
