The Talk Lady - Independent Speech and Language Therapy

I am a Speech & Language Therapist with over 20 years experience of working with children and young children who have communication difficulties.

I am able to offer a comprehensive specialist assessment of the child or young person's current communication skills and can develop a therapy package tailored to the needs of the individual.

I am able to help  children with a range of speech, language and communication needs.  I can provide an assessment and intervention service for children with identified needs.  These can present as:

  • unclear speech
  • slow or unusual development of spoken language
  • little or no spoken language
  • difficulties in understanding what people say
  • social communciation difficulties

The service will aim to support children/young people and their families by providing therapy and appropriate packages of care to meet the individual needs of each child. My aim is to help the child or young person to communicate with confidence.
