Children's Speech & Language Therapy | Plymouth, Devon & Cornwall
Speech and Language Therapy Service: Plymouth
Welcome to our Speech and Language Team in Plymouth. We help children who show delays with their speech and language. This can include:
Missing out sounds when speaking.
Replacing speech sounds with other sounds.
Speaking in mostly single words.
Struggling to understand instructions.
Finding it difficult to follow learning at school.
"In just a couple of sessions our little girl has come on leaps and bounds… very impressive work by the team."
We help children to communicate confidently and engage with learning!
Assessment: identification of your child’s needs
Early intervention: to produce the best outcomes
Regular feedback: updates on your child’s progress
Training: we work closely with your child’s setting to ensure your child receives daily practice - so they can make week on week progress.
Immediate support for your child - no waiting list
"Step Up worked brilliantly with our son to find out what motivated him and then tailored the speech sessions around that. He made steady progress throughout, and his self- confidence soared as a result! We would definitely recommend Step Up to support your child with their speech - they’ve made a real difference to ours! "
Lisa and the team are dedicated to help children move forward with their speech and become confident talkers. Some children can get stuck with their speech and be difficult to understand. This can lead to frustration and can restrict a child’s literacy learning at school.
We support children to use a range of sounds, to speak clearly and to improve their confidence with talking. Children make progress quickly with our fun and engaging therapy sessions.
"Within just a matter of sessions he was already learning new sounds and speaking clearer. We couldn’t be happier with the progress he has made. He speaks clearly, confidently and is understood by others!"
Most importantly, my child looked forward to the sessions. Step Up is brilliant at managing the child/parent/school dynamic too, so we are all working together."
More children are starting school without the language skills needed for learning and research shows this impacts on a child's future success at school. We are on on a mission to help local children catch up so the gap doesn't widen - and your child can move forward confidently with their learning!
We help children to:
Use a wide range of vocabulary
Speak in age-appropriate sentences
Understand the language used in the classroom.
