"I want children to be happy at school and have the skills to learn, as well as those to make and maintain friendships. I believe in the early identification of children’s needs so support can be put in place quickly. Through engaging therapy sessions I empower children to build upon their skills and become successful communicators"

Stammering

Also known as stuttering. This is a common speech problem in childhood which can persist into adulthood. Evidenced-based interventions support more fluent and confident speaking. 

Hello! I'm Lisa Taylor-Jones and I'm a Speech and Language Therapist working in Plymouth and its surrounding areas of South Devon and East Cornwall. I provide speech and language therapy  in Ivybridge, Tavistock and the South Hams,  as well as Liskeard, Callington and Looe.

I feel passionately about supporting children's speech and language and have helped hundreds of children overcome their speech and language difficulties to become confident speakers.

I also specialise in autism and social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
