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:

  • Unclear speech

  • Replacing common sounds with unusual speech sounds

  • Children who are limited to speaking in single words

  • Not using nice full sentences when they talk

  • Struggling to understand instructions.

  • Children who are finding it difficult to follow learning at school.

You've come to the right place!
Lisa and the team specialise in supporting preschool and school-aged children to make progress with their speech and have school-ready language skills for learning.

We provide specialist knowledge and the practical skills required to support your child. Our team can work with your family online, at home or within an educational setting.  

We offer:

  • Assessment and identification of your child’s needs

  • Early intervention to produce the best outcomes

  • Regular feedback and updates on your child’s progress

  • 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

Lisa and the team are dedicated to helping 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.

At Step Up we have a dedicated team to support children to use a range of sounds, to speak clearly and to improve their confidence with talking. With our input, children will improve their communication skills and respond well to our fun and engaging therapy sessions, making progress quickly. 


"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! " (Theo’s Mum)

"Our son was struggling to make certain sounds and was not always clear when speaking. 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!" (Freddie’s Mum)

More and more children are starting school without the language skills needed for learning. 

We're a team of health professionals on a mission to provide early intervention to get the best outcomes for children, to ensure the gap between them and their peers does not widen.

We offer weekly therapy sessions and additional resources to help your child achieve life long skills and access learning. We help children to:

  • Use a wide range of vocabulary

  • Speak in age-appropriate sentences

  • Understand language used in the classroom.


At Step Up we understand the challenges families face when children struggle with their speech and language skills and we are equipped to offer the solutions your family need. 



"In just a couple of sessions our little girl has come on leaps and bounds… very impressive work by the team." (Sienna’s Mum)

"From our first conversation, Lisa got to the heart of the problem and suggested the most appropriate approach. Quickly building rapport with my child, the progress they have made in just 3 months is impressive. Most importantly, my child looked forward to the sessions. Lisa is brilliant at managing the child/parent/school dynamic too, so we are all working together." (Louise’s Mum)

"Lisa has been fantastic, excellent communication, really got to know my son and provided excellent feedback. My little boy is only 4, he doesn't usually sit still for long but had a wonderful time with Lisa, playing the best 'games' and having so much fun, whilst unbeknown to him doing great therapy at the same time. Would definitely recommend." (Mark’s Mum)

How does it work?

Step 1 : Give us a call! Here you can share your concerns and get advice.
Step 2 : Book a relaxed assessment at your home.
Step 3: Watch your child make progress as they attend weekly therapy sessions. 

Where does therapy take place?

Therapy usually takes place at your child’s school. This takes the pressure off you, and allows us to work with the staff who see your child regularly at their preschool or school setting. We also offer therapy at children’s home and online.

How likely is progress?

Very likely! Most of the parents we work with notice their child’s speech and language skills improve immediately. Children we work with are very proud to show off their new skills and we support this by sending home activities so your child can show you how well they have done! 

My child hasn’t started talking yet. Can you help?

Definitely! Use the contact form on this website to tell Lisa and the team about your concerns and we’ll be in touch to discuss the best next steps for you and your family.

Do you work with people of all ages?

Although we would love to offer treatment, support and care for both children and adults we currently work with families to treat only children at the moment.
