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!

This is very true: parental instinct is a very real thing. If you are worried, don't wait, get it checked out. I offer assessments of communication development, advice and therapy: please get in touch if you have concerns about your child's communication skills.Many parents bring their concerns about their child not talking and all too often are told “Let’s just wait and see” by pediatricians- and often other parents and family members as well. But, this approach is outdated and has a negative impact on children with language delays. As parents, we want to set our kids up for success- and that means NOT waiting until your child has a SIGNIFICANT delay before you seek intervention- especially when you had concerns previously. So, go ahead and get an evaluation when you are first concerned- YOU ARE NOT CRAZY for doing this- even if your child turns out to not need therapy. The earlier intervention is started, the better likelihood your child will catch up to age level expectations and at a quicker rate! ... See MoreSee Less
