My Aim

I work to support children and young people with communication needs to achieve their academic, social and personal potential. I help young people who have communication difficulties to still do well at school, aspire to be their best, and take part in society. I also believe that children and young people make better progress when they enjoy what they do, and when everyone around them is fully supported to help them achieve. So I also strive to make therapy fun!

And as if writing a poem wasn't enough, Sam decided to read it himself. Take a look 👀 and a listen 👂. ... See MoreSee Less

This is a brilliant poem by a most talented young poet: everything you ever needed to know about a stammer. I'm extremely impressed 😊Have a read of this brilliant poem by Sam (aged 10) and his mum Victoria.

I HAVE A STAMMER

I have a stammer
It's a part of me
My words can get stuck
And they don't flow free

It doesn't mean I'm shy
I'm not weak or scared
Sometimes my words
Are just hard to be heard

The words are right there
On the tip of my tongue
They often get stuck
And my pauses are long

Sometimes I repeat
A sound or a word
This makes it hard
For my voice to be heard

I ask you to wait
Be patient and smile
My words will come out
But it may take a while

Don't finish my sentence
Don't laugh and don't stare
Just give me some time
And show me you care

The more I relax
I want you to know
I feel more confident
And the easier they flow

I am important too
My opinions still matter
I just struggle to keep up
With the flow of the chatter

Be happy being you
And that is the key
I have a stammer
It's what makes me, Me
