Therapy sessions would take place at my clinic in Maidstone or in your child’s school. I use a range of therapeutic techniques, including Parent Child Interaction Therapy (maximising your interactions with your child in order to develop their language skills); table-top work on speech sounds, language and attention and listening; and play based activities to help children who need to find alternative ways to communicate (e.g. signs and symbols). I also communicate with nurseries, schools and NHS services in order to ensure we are all working towards the same goals.
I also work with schools and I welcome contact to discuss the packages I can offer and costs.
