Childrens Speech and Language Therapist Plymouth Devon

“I just think you’re amazing. I’ve been concerned about my child for years and it’s been so great to talk to you. You really understand and can help me explain to other professionals what my concerns are so they understand. Without you, I’d still be tearing my hair out.”  ( Alfie's Mum)

Costs and Services:

 

Telephone Consultation = Free

This is the starting point for most parents. I’m very happy to listen to your concerns and share my tips and tricks to help you support your child at home. Most often, I can give you free advice to support you child’s speech and language development within this free consultation.

Initial assessment and feedback = £110 (60-90 mins approx.)

If you are still concerned about your child’s needs, I can meet with you and your child at your home to carry out a relaxed play-based assessment. This will help me identify your child's strengths and areas that need support. I can then discuss with you the best way forward to help your child overcome their difficulties. After this session, I will provide you with written feedback of my findings, recommendations and targets to work towards.

Therapy sessions = £75 (45-60 mins approx.)

Here I will meet your child for therapy sessions either at your home or by visiting their school or nursery setting. I use fun and engaging therapy tasks to bring out the best in your child and celebrate their new skills. I work with you and your family to create resources that can be used at home, and at school, to help your child practice their new skills and make progress quickly. 

Other services are available upon request.

E.g. report writing for:

  • School transitions

  • Autism pre-diagnostic assessment

  • GP onward referral

New Service: Step Up Access Service = £160 for 4 weeks

I feel passionately that all children's speech, language and communication needs should be supported in a timely way, that's why I have created this new early access service!

 

The Step Up Access Service is now offering parents the opportunity to be trained to deliver speech and language interventions specific to your child's individual needs. I will provide you with specialist guidance and support online, over the phone and in face to face meetings. You will receive individualised, child-friendly resources to work on your child's difficulty and reviews to help measure progress and build your child's confidence.

(This service is not suitable to all children due to the complex nature of some speech, language and communication difficulties. Please discuss your child's suitability during the initial telephone consultation. Spaces are limited.)
